2017 Fond Cyprès Premier Jus languedoc roussillon, france
$33

In 1998, Laetitia Ourliac and Rodolphe Gianesini found a somewhat forgotten vineyard of 18 acres in Escales near Lézignan in the appellation of Corbières.
For 6 years they undertook winemaking training and began the slow work required to develop their land in the ancient manner, by creating terraces and planting vines: Carignan, Syrah and Grenache for red wine and Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Viognier for white - Fond Cyprès was born in 2004.
This delightful and very moreish wine is made by adding whole berries of Carignan to a fermenting Saignee of Grenache and pressed 2 days later then aged in Burgundian casks for 6 months - so in essence this wine started as a Rose and finished as a red. It is very bright, succulent and juicy with lots of verve. In the mouth it is delicious and moreish, served cool or cold the bottle doesn't last long!!
