The wine is balanced with silky tannins. 
Flavors of leather and citrus with a nice pleasant finish.

"La Catiede" is the name of the "Lieu-dit" where the vines are planted. It has been in the Laugé family for many generations and naming a Cuvée La Catiede represent the heritage and an hommage to their ancestors.

Delicious with lamb and grilled vegetables.

Review:

"From the schist soils of the Faugères region in the Languedoc, the 2016 Faugères La Catiede has a sappy, resinous note as well as ample blackcurrants, cherry, rosemary, and pine-scented aromas and flavors. I love its complexity, and it’s medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, and has a great finish. A blend of 50% Carignan, 20% each of Mourvèdre and Grenache, and the rest Syrah, it’s well worth seeking out and will keep for 4-6 years."
