Juicy and smooth fruit driven. Medium bodied
Tasting Notes: A juicy Merlot, bursting full of ripe black plum, damson and elderberry. Well balanced with soft tannins and a medium acidity which complements the ripe fruit flavours.
Established in 1967 in Arzens in the Aude, Les Vignobles Foncalieu is a union of cooperative wineries rooted in the heart of the Languedoc. Over 800 growers work everyday to bring the best from the terroirs from Languedoc- Roussillon, to produce exceptional wines. The name Foncalieu is made up of letters of villages in the region of l`Aude - Fonties de Aude, Capendu - Alzonne - Montolieu. Foncalieu are HVE certified, they advocate strongly for biodiversity. The trees and hedges around some of their vineyards provide shelter for bats, which feed on the insects that are harmful to the vines. A virtuous circle.
