2011 Terres Falmet Mourvedre...$14.99
Yves Falmet worked for Marris Wines in Australia, Mantanzas Creek in California, and Neudorf Winery in New Zealand. The grapes are all grown on steep hillside vineyard.
The grapes for this wine are 100% hand-harvested. The vines are all planted on a single hillside in the appellation of Saint-Chinian. The grapes are crushed, destemmed, then undergo a long maceration in tank. This wine is vinified and aged in tank, and there is no oak ageing.
This is a deep, dark-colored wine, with beautiful black fruit aromas. The wine is supple and sweet in the mouth, full of black cherry, plum, fruit with a smoky undertone. Silky blackberry fruit complement the round tannins in the finish. Though Mourvèdre is known for its age-worthiness, this is such an enjoyable wine now, it will be hard to resist drinking it in its youth.
