Atelier Prestige Foncalieu Les Illustres 2017


60% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec. Deep ruby in color. The medium plus flavor intensity is lifted by acidy, muscular tannins resulting in a full-bodied wine with a long finish. There are layers of complexity that evolve in the bottle. Les Illustres is the story of 8 winegrowers who have pooled their experience in order to craft an outstanding wine. This is a unique cuvee, made from vines that draw their energy from the rock of the Oppidum d’Enserune, the famous archaeological site listed as a ‘Monument National de France’ where the remains of an ancient village still stand.

Pronounced violets and floral aromas mixed with cardamon, tobacco, leather, blackberry, black cherry, blueberry, bramble, vanilla, white pepper, and a whiff of oak. The palate is dominated by blue and black fruit with fresh and compote tones. Secondarily featuring dark chocolate, smoke, cracked black pepper, beef jerky, herbs mix, earthy, tobacco, and bottle aging wonderfulness.

Pairs great with BBQ grilled, beef ribs, duck breast, grilled lamb chops, capon stuffed with morel mushrooms, Bluefin or Red Tuna tartare with ginger, beef in orange sauce, Asian style beef, sausage with lentils.
