Fond Cyprès - Cyprès de Toi Rouge 2021
A blend of Syrah and Grenache grown on calcareous soil and blue marl just outside Escales, a medieval town in the northernmost part of the Corbières AOC. The “vent Cers” or winds from the northwest bring cold, dry weather as a counterpoint to the warm, humid air from the Mediterranean to the east, known as the “vent Marin.” Seriously quaffable, this zero-zero blend is medium-bodied and super clean, light and chewy with gentle tannins. Crunchy black fruit, a sprinkling of peppercorn and a long, fresh finish. Mortadella vibes.
This is our replacement for the Le Pluriel by Sylvain Boutée, one of the store favorites..
