Sang de Cailloux Azalais is one of the traditional cuvees produced at Domaine Le Sang de Cailloux each year. Serge names the wines on rotation after each of his daughters – these wines are very much at the heart of the estate.
2015 is a classic year in Rhone – and this is a great opportunity to enjoy a wine with a little bottle age.
A concentrated red fruit palate, with plenty of Provençal herbs. This wine has texture, balance, and all of the southern charm you could hope for.
Serge Férigoule acquired Le Sang des Cailloux in 1990, after having worked for 10 years with the previous owner. From there, he stopped chemical weeding and removed synthetic products. His son, Frédéri, joined him in 2003 and they decided to have the estate certified organic and then biodynamic. The 17 hectares of vineyarda in Vacqueyras are located on a plateau facing the Dentelles de Montmirail. With its clay-limestone terroir, reddish brown, and its rolled pebbles, Le Sang des Cailloux mainly produces red wine but for several years Serge and Frédéri have been trying their hand at white.
