Flora & Fauna Rouge
Reminds me of my first trip to France… those easy drinking wines that we were poured in the cabannons that backed onto Narbonne Plage. A warm berry aroma preceded cherry juice, a pinch of pepper, a hint of garrigue herbs… perfect with simple grilled meats, a salad or even sardines. Not that I was eating that stuff. I was only 18 months old. Hey, don’t judge. They were different times.

Deep in colour the nose is packed with dark forest fruit aromas on the nose, blackberry, plum, red-currant, slow. On the palate the true Languedoc character comes through; rich and concentrated with a freshness too, that makes the wine incredibly approachable. Tannins are grippy but very easy.
Flora & Fauna are effectively our house wines. Simple things, done well, from Master of Wine Liam Steevenson, showing that even for MWs not everything needs to be all fancy pantsy all of the time.
