Pezenas ‘No.35’, Jacques Frelin Vignobles

£13.99

This wine was specially selected, along with its white partner Roussanne No. 35 (our code 130), to celebrate the 35th anniversary of our old friend Jacques Frelin‘s company. It hails from the small Pézenas appellation located between the Herault river and the ‘Montagne Noir’ of the Aude region.

Lightly oaked with staves, this is a complex and quite powerful wine that’s deep red in colour. Its aromas of licquorice and violet with a hint of cardamon introduce generous fruit (blackberry and blackcurrant) with roasted coffee beans, clove, and pepper with silky tannins. The finish is lavish and lingering. Versatile with all kinds of tasty food.

Jacques Frelin

We first met Jacques Frelin In Paris in 1987 and this pioneer of the French organic wine movement has been our most important supplier almost from that moment. Originally from the Vendée region he worked initially with his now ex-wife at Domaine de Clairac, then with Louis Andrieu and Olivier Azan. He now runs the operation single-handedly but with the backing of his old friend Frédéric Lachaux.
Organic vineyards represented – 40 hectares. Organic since 1983.
