Product Description

Mas Olivier Esprit Nature White is made from 60% Roussanne and 40% Marsanne.

This limited “cuvée” is the outcome of a terroir and the commitment to organic farming. A handful of winegrowers driven by the same desires and passion: protecting the environment, the well-being of future generations & the fair compensation of the meticulous hard work all year long.

A beautiful pale golden color with green tints, it expresses orange zest and toffee aromas on the nose. In the mouth, pleasant flavors of orange blossoms are accompanied by a wonderful minerality coming from the Schist terroir. The lingering finish is fresh, juicy and soft, an elegant balance of structure and intensity.


Early morning hand harvest to keep the natural freshness of the grapes. Direct pressing and juice clarification by means of flotation.
Fermentation process under monitored temperature before the wine is put into barrels for maturing.
Ageing on fine lees in new French oak barrels for at least 5 months, stirred regularly with care.

Pair with fish terrine, asparagus, chicken dishes.





Winery: Les Crus Faugeres

Les Crus Faugères is located in the heart of the Faugères Appellation, in the Languedoc Roussillon. 

It is a major player, as it is the only cave cooperative in the area. They manage 900 hectares (2,223 acres) of vineyards, out of the 2,000 hectares (4,940 acres) of Faugeres planted. Let's say that 1 bottle of Faugeres out of 2 is made in this cellar!

Faugeres was recognized as an exclusive quality terroir in 1955, when it was classified as VDQS (Vin De Qualité Supérieure).

Because of the specific soil type and the uniqueness of the terroir, Faugeres became its own AOC in 1982.

Baron Ermengaud Faugeres Rouge 2019

Baron Ermengaud Faugeres Rouge is made from 80% Syrah, 10% Grenache, 5%, Mourvèdre and 5% Carignan.

The Baron Ermengaud cuvée is named after the lord Ermengaud de Fouzilhon. In the 12 century, the Lord gave land, which was located in Laurens Village, to monks, who built a monastic barn.

This powerful and full-bodied wine, with a deep consistency, offers an intensity of ripe fruits. It has a long, rich palate on velvety tannins with raised hints of pepper.

Pairs with roast saddle of lamb with juniper berries; peppered venison with pears.

Review:

"Les Crus Faugères is the only cooperative in this appellation, managing 2,223 acres or nearly half of Faugères’ vines. It puts out a vast array of labels, including Mas Olivier, also recommended here, but Baron Ermengaud was the standout for both its 2019 and 2018 reds. Mostly syrah (80 percent), with grenache, carignan and mourvèdre, all of it hand-harvested off schist parcels, the 2019 shines in its combination of earthiness and brightness. Lively acidity and herbal notes give it a just-picked freshness that energizes the red fruit; the clarity allows a clear view of the earth, too, in shades of schist and iron. It tastes like it’s from a place, with a sense of sun and garrigue that’s transporting."

Its vibrant, shiny dress is a feast for the eyes with its salmon, peach color.

Then try its soft yet lively body, gradually leading you to a distinctive anis finish. A wine for every occasion !
