On 2012 vintage: 16 "An explosion of aromas and flavours. It is delicious, full of vine peaches, violet and pear. The palate is round and structured. A hugely seducing wine."
"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...
