Faugères? Wines from this rarely encountered Languedoc appellation are rather elusive here in Blighty - and as the label suggests, this wine has a secret recipe from hidden vineyard plots to add to the sense of intrigue.

It leaps out of the glass with a veritable feast of scents and flavours from this intoxicatingly wonderful corner of France.

Well defined red fruit, an appetising whiff of floral and oaky notes are all seasoned with the classic garrigue herbs of the Herault, like fragrant rosemary, lavender and sage.

There’s a LOT going on in the glass here and the Syrah 50%, Grenache 30%, Carignan 20% is separately vinified using minimal intervention and organic certified since this 2019 vintage. It’s vegan too, so what’s not to love?

France - 2019 - 13% - 75cl

Organic certified - Vegan - Vegetarian - Hand picked - Low intervention
