Domaine Saint Andre

In the heart of Languedoc , facing the town of Sète and Mont Saint Clair, cradled by the Lagoon of Thau, the Domaine Saint-André, with an area of ​​30 hectares, brings together all the traditional grape varieties of the Languedoc ( Cinsault, Carignan, Chardonnay, Muscat, Roussanne, Vermentino and Viognier ), to which are added certain Bordeaux grape varieties ( Merlot and Cabernet Franc ). Its vineyard benefits from a Mediterranean climate tempered by maritime influences. Its soil, predominantly clay-limestone, is conducive to the production of excellent quality wines.
This dark ruby red is very intense and expressive, with blackberry and sour cherry aromas, followed by hints of sweet pepper. Plenty of well-balanced tannins on the palate, supported by a pleasant acidity. An elegant and well-structured wine!
Enjoy this wine at room temperature, with black Lentil stew, oregano & tomatoes, smoky BBQ, Cheese and Spinach Quiche.
The grapes are harvested and fermented separately. After a cold maceration, the fermentation is managed traditionally, in small stainless-steel tanks and concrete vats, providing a precise winemaking. The maceration last for 2 weeks, with regular pumping over extracting primary aromas, colour and tannins. The wine is aged 16 months in medium-toasted French oak barrels of 400l

Matthew Jukes, Money Week, September 2023: "Two reds stuck up their hands, which are worthy of serious inspection. 2021 Folie d’Inès, Domaine Saint-André, Pays d’Oc (£15.99) is a Cabernet Franc, Merlot-based blend with remarkable depth and an imposing stance on the palate. Named after Inès Hébert, the former owner of the Domaine, I cannot think of another Southern French red with this degree of flair, impact and individuality. It has all the hallmarks of a wine with twice the price, so be sure to load up if you adore swarthy, evocative, daring red wines".
