CLOS FANTINE, FAUGERES "CUVEE COURTIOL", 6 Bottle Case 75cl
Each year the Andrieu family chooses the best grapes of the vintage for their Cuvée Courtiol. Predominantly Mourvedre from bush-trained, 30 year-old vines grown on beautiful schist vineyards in Faugères. The grapes are hand-harvested into small crates, and as always, the fermentation is long and slow with indigenous yeasts then bottled with no fining, filtration or added SO2. Deep red/black colour in the glass, like the "Tradition" it has less "sauvage" aromas than past vintages.
