Domaine Ollier-Taillefer, Castel Fossibus, 2014
€17.65
The grape varieties grenache, syrah and mourvèdre have been carefully selected, sorted, vinified and matured in oak barrels for this cuvée. Only 15% of new oak barrels has been used as Françoise Ollier avoids dominating the style of the terroir by excessive wood aromas, using French oak to enhance the elegance of the tannins. This refined, enticing Faugères will accompany a beef steak, or even a Gardiane bull stew... Olé !

Details

Located in the South of France, in the north-east of the AOC Faugères producing area, in the heart of the Languedoc, the Domaine Ollier-Taillefer is a family property. It is run by Luc and Françoise Ollier, brother and sister, the 5th generation of locally-born wine-makers today responsible for these 30 hectares of AOC Faugères vineyards. Harvesting is done by hand, and the grapes are carefully sorted before delivery to the cellars for vinification. Conscious of the fragile ecological environment of the local slate soils, the Ollier family has chosen to respect their terroir and cultivate their vines as naturally as possible.
