Domaine du Cros Marcillac Lo Sang Del Pais

$28.05

Located near the village of Clairvaux, Domaine du Cros is owned by Phillipe and Julien Teulier. The largest independent producer in Marcillac, the winery has been an important part of the region’s resurgence in the past decade. The Cuvée Lo Sang del Païs is made from 100% Mansois grapes that were hand harvested from 25 year old vines. After being destemmed the grapes were fed into stainless steel tanks by gravity flow. Fermented for 21 days, the wine was aged for 6 months in large oak and chestnut barrels. The oldest barrels are up to 200 years old.

Tasted blind, this wine could easily be mistaken for high quality Northern Rhône Syrah. A tip off about the wine’s character is in the translation of the name. The name ‘Fer’ takes its origin from the Latin word ‘ferus’, meaning ‘wild’ or ‘savage’. Garnet red in colour, on the nose it expresses savoury aromas of wild black berries, liquorice, cassis, and black pepper. Medium bodied, the palate is charmingly rustic with lean and sinewy tannins. The finish is dry with lingering minerality.
