Food Pairings for Domaine du Meteore Faugères les Leonides
The vineyards of Faugères are planted on steep-sloped schist outcrops of the Cévennes. This particular estate owes its name to a 10,000 year old meteor, which can be seen at the base of the crater. The Léonides, described by Paul Strang as 'one of the bargains of the appellation,' is made from roughly equal quantities of Syrah, Mourvèdre, Carignan and Grenache. The wine itself is a traditional meaty Faugères with its gorgeous deep colour, heady aromas of flowering shrub, bay, balsam and serious quantities of dark smoked fruits on the palate.
