$39.00

Complex, elegant. Red fruit and black berries, notes of pepper and dried herbs. Mediterranean, but also Asian cuisines.

Description

The ‘Jean’ is  a wine very representative of the Pic-Saint-Loup  appellation. It is a GSM blend (Syrah 50%, Grenache 45%, Mourvèdre 5%) of brilliant ruby color. A generous, complex nose of red fruit and black berries framed by enticing spicy notes. We find the same aromatic breadth on the palate, its ripe and voluptuous fruit framed by notes of pepper and dried herbs, with the Syrah contributing round and silky tannins.

The 22 hectares of organically farmed vines of the Mas de Figuier are located in the Pic Saint Loup appellation in the north east of the Languedoc. Here the weather is cooler and wetter, with large temperature variations from day to night, and the resulting wines combine ripe, sun-filled fruit with freshness and elegance.

Serving suggestions: This wine supports a broad range of flavours and textures, from Mediterranean and Middle Eastern to East Asian cuisines. Lamb kebabs with cumin, vegetable stews and soft cheeses are all favourite choices.
