2009 Domaine la Sarabande, Faugeres. Cambridge Wine £14.99. B+
A blend of 60% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 25% Carignan. On the nose, it shows really bright red fruits, strawberry and raspberry almost liqueur like; some black cherry and plums too. On the palate, its expressive and fresh, still showing lots of bright fruit, quite extracted; filling, with decent texture too, gentle tannic grip at the end. Well put together, classy wine.
