2009 Château Haut Lignières Faugeres 1er...$19.99
Technical Notes: The average age of the vines at Haut Lignières is 40 years old. Through vineyard management and green harvesting, the yields are kept to a low 32 hectoliters per hectare. No herbicides are used in the vineyards. All grapes are harvested by hand. The grapes are then destemmed, crushed, and undergo a 30 day maceration. The wine is then aged 50% in tank, and 50% in 1,2,3 year old barrels for 12 months before bottling.
Tasting Notes: With its relatively high percentage of Mourvèdre, this is a dark and brooding Faugères. In the glass the wine has a concentrated, deep purple color. The nose is perfumed with sweet blackberry and black raspberry aromas. In the mouth it is lush with rich black fruit flavors, and hints of blueberry and coco. Even with its deep concentration, the tannins are surprisingly supple and silky. This wine is simultaneously a sumptuous wine built for enjoyment, in addition to being an age worthy wine for the cellar.
