ADD

Over the course of his career, Sylvain Fadat of Domaine d’Aupilhac has established himself as one of the foremost ambassadors for the great terroirs of the Languedoc. A champion of organic and biodynamic farming in this arid Mediterranean climate, he has proven over the years that the region is capable of producing wines of great complexity, finesse, and longevity. While his numerous old-vine bottlings showcase the potential for deep, concentrated reds here, he also crafts Lou Maset, an entry-level cuvée consisting of young-vine fruit from primarily Grenache, Cinsault, and Carignan. The light vinification and use of only stainless steel for aging is meant to preserve fresh, juicy fruit characteristics without giving too much tannic structure, with the goal of making a well-priced everyday red that still tastes like where it’s from. In this 2014, you’ll find notes of black cherry, spices, and garrigue herbs—a rustic, yet quaffable red perfect for a casse-croûte among friends.
–Anthony Lynch
