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.
Matthew Dukes, 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".
