Domaine La Fourmente was established in 1922 by the Pouizon family who today still own and run the estate. It’s red grape varieties consist of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault and Carignan. In the vineyard the family are moving to organic farming practices avoiding the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides and fermentation takes place using the natural wild yeasts.
Very deep almost opaque black purple colour with black purple hue. Appealing lifted nose with top note of liquorice, followed by spice, raspberry and blackberry. The palate has good weight and mouthfeel with flavours of plum, raspberry and liquorice with some inky overtones. Fine slightly chalky tannins, but in balance. Long inky raspberry and plum aftertaste.

Alc/Vol: 13.5% Sep
Domaine La Fourmente is a family-run winery that has been making wine in the renowned Cotes du Rhone region in France since 1922. This is a blend of the ancient grape cinsault (50%), grenache (25%) and syrah (25%).
It’s the perfect example of why we should always let a wine breathe. There were contrasting smells after each swirl I gave the wine. The more I swirled the better it got. Once it had decanted for about 30 minutes it really started to shine.
Overall it’s light in style with fine, supple tannins but supremely balanced with incredible structure. It’s not particularly fruity but there are vibrant hints of liquorice, leather and cassis. It’s definitely elegant, refined and a little mysterious. It would partner food like lamb and duck very well.
