Faugeres Clos Fantine, natural wine, Carignan, Grenache, Mourvedre, pure Languedoc, herbaceous aroma, body and structure with a whiff of residual CO2.  The vines are not far from those of the uber famous Faugeres producer Leon Barral.  The style is slightly different.  Clos Fantine has structure, ripe, dark fruits and concentration from very low yields.  The vines have been organic for decades although they are not certified.  No sulphur is added to the wine at all.  Instead they capture a touch of natural CO2 during the fermentation.  This gives the wine a lovely fresh zipp which keeps it light and very easy drinking.  Faugeres Clos Fantine is delightfully easy drinking red wine.  It is very versatile but with some grilled lamb, Rosemary and potatoes, it is perfect.

Clos Fantine is in the commune of Cabrerolles in Faugères, Landuedoc.  It is run by two sisters and their brother following the death of their father who started the winery in the 80s.

They maintain the vineyard with the highest respect for nature, though they are not certified organic or biodynamic.  In their words: 'We have always worked to respect what nature has to offer.  Our pleasure is to listen to nature, to watch nature, and to allow her to have the energy and strength to express herself.'

Drinking the Faugeres Clos Fantine will bring you close to nature.  The wine is full of wild garrigue aromas, dark fruits and smokiness.
