2013 Languedoc Rouge “La Boda”

Domaine d'Aupilhac

2013 Languedoc Rouge “La Boda” Domaine d'Aupilhac - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

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.

About Languedoc-Roussillon

Ask wine drinkers around the world, and the word “Languedoc” is sure to elicit mixed reactions. On the one hand, the region is still strongly tied to its past as a producer of cheap, insipid bulk wine in the eyes of many consumers. On the other hand, it is the source of countless great values providing affordable everyday pleasure, with an increasing number of higher-end wines capable of rivaling the best from other parts of France.

While there’s no denying the Languedoc’s checkered history, the last two decades have seen a noticeable shift to fine wine, with an emphasis on terroir. Ambitious growers have sought out vineyard sites with poor, well draining soils in hilly zones, curbed back on irrigation and the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, and looked to balance traditional production methods with technological advancements to craft wines with elegance, balance, and a clear sense of place. Today, the overall quality and variety of wines being made in the Languedoc is as high as ever.

Shaped like a crescent hugging the Mediterranean coast, the region boasts an enormous variety of soil types and microclimates depending on elevation, exposition, and relative distance from the coastline and the cooler foothills farther inland. While the warm Mediterranean climate is conducive to the production of reds, there are world-class whites and rosés to be found as well, along with stunning dessert wines revered by connoisseurs for centuries.

For the wines that I buy I insist that the winemaker leave them whole, intact. I go into the cellars now and select specific barrels or cuvées, and I request that they be bottled without stripping them with filters or other devices. This means that many of our wines will arrive with a smudge of sediment and will throw a more important deposit as time goes by, It also means the wine will taste better.
