Chateau de la Liquiere, Faugeres Rouge, Cuvee Cistus, 2018

Named after the cistus or rock rose, the pretty shrub which dots the hillsides, a blend of 70% Syrah with 30% Mourvèdre. 2018 was a very small harvest (after problems with mildew) of high quality; 60% was aged in 500-litre barrels, and the... Read More

Languedoc-Roussillon

There’s something very complete about our annual offer of wines from the Languedoc and Roussillon: with whites, rosés and reds, and wonderful fortified wines, the Vins Doux Naturels which are such a speciality of the region, there should be something for all tastes. Secondly, there are wines for every budget; at every level we believe these wines continue to offer terrific interest...

Shiraz / Syrah

Shiraz / Syrah   Powerful, black-fruited, often aged in oak, syrah/Shiraz comes in varying styles but at the top (such as Hermitage) can be spectacular and very long-lived. There is no question that Syrah is now the most fashionable red grape for new plantings in many New World countries, especially South Africa and Chile. Origins       Unknown. Linked by...

Jancis Robinson

We get super excited when Jancis Robinson (or one of her team) write about our wine! Voted the world's most influential wine critic in polls in the US, France and internationally in 2018, Jancis views herself as a wine writer rather than a wine critic. She writes daily for JancisRobinson.com and weekly for the Financial Times. She is founder-editor of The Oxford Companion to Wine,...

Chateau de la Liquiere, Faugeres Rouge, Cuvee Cistus, 2018

Named after the cistus or rock rose, the pretty shrub which dots the hillsides, a blend of 70% Syrah with 30% Mourvèdre. 2018 was a very small harvest (after problems with mildew) of high quality; 60% was aged in 500-litre barrels, and the rest in tank. A dark wine - dark in hue and dark in flavour profile - showing black cherry and cassis accented by black chocolate oak hints and liquorice. Fragrance of the garrigue. Still youthful and vigorous; with lurking mineral depths. Now-2026

"Gorgeous nose – plummy and plush and sumptuous, every bit of which is echoed on the palate. You want to sink into this wine, pull it over your head like a duvet on a chilly day, feel its spiced ripeness tingle on the roof of your mouth, lick every drop off your lips. Deeply comforting, proper integrity and depth, long finish with profound garrigue-scented freshness." 17/20, 2020-2026 Tamlyn Curran, jancisrobinson.com, Tasted July 2020

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
