Tasting notes: This 2014 vintage expresses a powerful nose, very complex, mainly vanilla which evolves very quickly with aeration. The second nose reveals a dominance of black fruit, with aromas of blackberry jam, blackcurrant and warm blueberry tart. Incredibly fine, the mouth has tight tannins, supremely velvety, and incredible freshness. An endearing wine, extremely changeable, breathtakingly long.
After owning a wine bar in Paris and working a few years as a wine journalist, Hervé Bizeul, a former “France’s Best Young Sommelier”, founded the Clos des Fées in 1998 with his wife. His idea was to produce a good wine for friends. The first vintage, created in his garage with very little investments, was a huge success immediately. Today, his wines are sold worldwide.
The vines span across a number of differing terroirs across the Roussillon, as much as 15 km apart from each other. The varying exposures and myriad of subsoils from granite to limestone make for a thoroughly unique and consistent quality. Old vines (up to 100 years old in some sectors), hand picking, … a viticultural philosophy that is respectful to nature and explains the high quality of the wines. Grenache, Carignan, Syrah, Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris make up the majority of the plantings. The wines are aged in oak barriques for at least a year and are bottled without filtration.
