Domaine de Foltodon
Domaine de Foltodon
The Crouzet family of Domaine de Foltodon have been working the land in Saint-Côme et Maruejols on the Vaunage Plain, between Nîmes and Sommieres, since the 1850's. The estate has been handed down from father to son for the last 3 generations, with current owner and winemaker Olivier Crouzet at the helm since 1997. In 2003, he made the decision to convert to organic farming. By 2008, the conversion was complete, and full certification followed in 2011. The vineyards comprise 7 hectares, planted on low, south-facing terraces of clay-limestone, under a thin layer of flat stones. Syrah and Mourvèdre are planted for red wine, Syrah and Cinsault for rosé and Grenache Blanc, Viognier and Sauvignon for white.

We first met Olivier in the summer of 2013, at a gathering organised for us by another winegrower, and were mightily impressed with the quality (not to mention the excellent value) of his wines. Domaine de Foltodon is definitely an estate to watch.

The nose is wonderfully inviting and fresh, offering zesty soft citrus, peach and spring flower aromas, with subtle notes of garrigue herbs, fennel and wet stone. A proportion of Sauvignon Blanc is less unusual than one might think in southern white wine blends, and this wine shows just how well it can work - it adds a touch of the herbaceous, without imparting any of the variety's "extreme" elements. And it combines beautifully with the gently floral/grapey perfume and flavours of the Viognier and the more secondary/non-fruit elements of the Grenache, in a wine that adds up to more than the sum of its parts. The palate has a zesty, gently pithy citrus quality, more orange than lemon, along with a touch of peachy ripeness, a creamy texture, a modicum of grape tannin and ample acidity. All-in-all, a really charming, refreshing and flavour-filled wine - and for the money, it really is great value. Organic.

A bright but deep, semi-translucent carmine/cherry red colour. The 10% Mourvedre in the blend really does make all the difference, adding a subtle meaty-herby savouriness to the fresh, ripe, red cherry, blackcurrant and raspberry aromas and flavours of the Syrah. On the palate, it is beautifully poised - crammed full of gloriously fresh, juicy, garrigue herb-tinged red and black fruit flavours, ripe tannins and a refreshing lick of cherry kernel acidity, with a welcome bite of peppery spice and cool mint on the finish. From vineyards wedged between the southern Rhône and eastern Languedoc (south-west of Nimes), it certainly sings of the latter rather than the former, with a coolness and genuine elegance that one rarely, if ever, finds in the Rhône. Aged in vat, with no oak influence at all, it really is a delightful wine. Organic.
