Typically a traditional blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Carignan-Mourvèdre-Cinsault – this is certainly a wine to get excited about. Beautiful to drink now – but also to be enjoyed over the next 10 to 15 years.
The classic style of forward red fruit, with provencal herbs, then balance and texture, as well as plenty of opportunity to age. What else are you looking for in a red wine?
Serge Férigoule bought 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.
