Mas Lou, Tio Faugeres 2016
Syrah 90%, Carignan and Grenache Noir 10%
Adele Arnaud et Olivier Gil
The richness and the generous fruit of the Mas Lou, Tio Faugeres 2016 allowed for twelve months in barrels to add complexity, but without overpowering. On the nose, pepper and toasted spices dominate. The palate expresses aromas of cocoa and ripe crimson fruit. A real Languedoc beauty!
At Mas Lou, Tio Faugeres 2016 they hand pick their grapes. The best wines are raised in oak barrels, a small part of which are new. Winemakers/Owners Adele Arnaud and Olivier Gil are considering to use amphoras and/or cement tanks as well.
