Mas Olivier Faugeres Rouge Expression
Les Crus Faugeres ( Ermengaud / Mas Olivier )
France - Languedoc-Roussillon - Faugeres

Unique plot nested in hilltops, 400 meters above sea level. 100% rich Schist soils. The grapes are selected with love and great care (optimum maturity checks and berry tasting before the hand harvest). Each variety is harvested separately on different dates to insure the best quality and the perfect homogeneous blend “expression” of the AOP Faugères terroir.

Dark color with a deep purple hue. Intense nose with ripe red berries notes which reveals after breathing herbal notes of pepper, incense, cardamom and chili. It is a well-structured wine with powerful and fine tannins.
