From the bottle:
The domaine is located in the highland of the Languedoc region. The wines are made from Grenache, Syrah, Carignan grapes. The knowledge and passion of the winemaker, Frederic Albaret, has created a very attractive and pleasant wine - rich, generous with a hint of garrigues and spice combined with soft and rounded tannins.
In preparation for #LanguedocDay on May 27th, we're back with another recommended selection for you to try. After the meaty Syrah we explored last week, today we turn to a soothing blend typical of the region. And when we say soothing, we mean it. In fact, it's fitting that the name of this wine is the Les Jardins (The Gardens) as you tend to think of gardens as peaceful, comforting places and that's exactly the image that comes to mind when sipping this wine.
The 2011 Domaines Saint Antonin Les Jardins Faugeres begins with a very pleasant, very strong aroma full of red cherry, floral notes, red licorice and a little mint. The medium-bodied wine tastes smooth, soft, and almost comforting in the mouth and is full of blackberry and red berry fruit with bits of spice. The red licorice from the nose returns on the long, dry finish where a bit of a balsamic edge also emerges. Another great wine from the Languedoc!
