Deep in the rustic southern French countryside near the town of Montpeyroux, Sylvain Fadat proudly waves the flag for the high-quality terroirs of the Languedoc. In a region plagued by a reputation for bulk wine, Sylvain has proven over the course of many vintages that sensible site selection, conscientious farming, and low yields from old vines can produce wines of great pedigree, comparable to those from the Rhône or Provence but often at a lesser price. For a first-time Club Rouge exclusive, we are pleased to offer Sylvain’s tête de cuvée: La Boda is a marriage of the domaine’s two best terroirs to create a super-cuvée loaded with regional character. It consists of powerful Mourvèdre from the Aupilhac vineyard blended with Syrah, Carignan, and Grenache from the high-altitude Cocalières site for finesse. Dense and muscular with suggestions of spicy garrigue and inky black fruit, La Boda can be enjoyed today and for many, many years to come.
