Mas Foulaquier L’Orphée is a 50% Grenache Noir and Blanc and 50% Syrah blend, expressive of the attention to terroir and biodynamic practices. It opens dramatically with a bit of oxygen, the earthy and floral aromatics are balanced by rich dark blueberries, plum, pepper and violets on the palate. The finish is soft and has a stony minerality but this wine has plenty of concentration.

With its old stone farmhouse built over centuries, Mas Foulaquier is situated at the northern edge of the designated Pic Saint Loup ‘cru’. The farm overlooks a large plot of 8 hectares of sloping vines, similar to an enclosed Burgundy parcel. In addition to this lovely setting, the property is part of the exceptional Pic-St-Loup terroir: a pebbly landscape warmed by the southern sun and cooled by the climate of the lower reaches of the Cévennes. In 2003, Blandine Chauchat joined the Foulaquier team bringing with her three hectares of old vines in the plot known as Les Tonillières in Claret. The aim of the estate is not to obtain maximum extraction, but rather elegance and fruit.

Food matches: Another wine that pairs beautifully with wild boar, or even braised lamb shanks.
