"Sorcières" - literally, "witches" - is the most famous cuvée from Clos des Fées when it comes to more affordable wines, and has become one of the region's reference in its category. A deep colour, intense aromas of red and black fruit, soft tannins and a refreshing spicy finish... We love every sip of it. This subtle blend (old vines of Grenache and Carignan with young Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes) is a generous medium-bodied red, typical of the Côtes du Roussillon appellation. It is delicious young and will last 5 years in your cellar.

On 2013 vintage: 16.5 "It makes us want to bite in wild cherries, this wine is one of an example. A fruity pleasure until the last drop!"
"It’s a knockout bottle of wine" - Robert Parker. The Clos des Fées Rouge is the flagship red of the domain, the one which has made its success in the early days. It is a subtle blend of very old grapes of Grenache and Carignan (70 to 100 years old!), and young high-quality vines of Syrah and Mourvèdre. The timing of the harvest is decided in order to...
