Château de Ciffre Terroirs d'Altitude 2014
Full-flavoured, expressive Saint-Chinian from France's lovely Languedoc
Nicolas and Miren de Lorgeril bought this beautiful property, tucked away in the rocky Languedoc hills, in 2007 and have devoted their lives to upgrading the château and vineyards. Their scented hillsides are strewn with vineyards and ‘garrigue’, the natural olive, pine and wild herb flora that can’t help but lend this wine its own special wildness. Saint Chinian is renowned for deep, dark, spicy reds based on Syrah and Grenache. Sometimes Mourvèdre, Carignan and Cinsault are added, but there is always a refreshing mineral quality, and you’ll find that in this superb red. Winemaker Bernard Durand uses his winemaking experience from Argentina and New Zealand to make the fruit sing out. A top choice with coq au vin or lamb dishes.
