2014 AOP Fitou 'Le Coupe Soif'
70/30 Carignan/Grenache, from 70 year old vines - certified organic. 15 days maceration with little extraction, then remaining ferment and élevage for 7 months in old barrels. 10mg/L SO2 at bottling.
Black berry, black rock mineral volcano style goodness. Lifted aromatics. Some gas freshness on palate entry. Quite savoury this time. Minerality over fruit. Nice tension and fine tannin grip, great structure. Fresh, chewy, so good for the price.
