Le Temp des Cerises Fou du Roi 2021


no added sulfur

Country: France

Region: Languedoc

Type: Red Wine

Grape: Grenache/Carignan/Cinsault

Organic farming. 1/3 each of Grenache, Cinsault, and Carignan hand-harvested from vines grown in decomposed limestone, quartz, and granite soils. The grapes spontaneously co-ferment with, first, a short carbonic maceration before pressing. Élevage lasts about 6 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered, with no added sulfur.

Fou du Roi (The Jester) is a light to medium-bodied wine with complex aromatics and minerality. Notes of cherry and blackcurrant, with medium acidity, grippy tannins, and  a long finish.
