Domaine Saint Felix des Toureilles 2009
The mountainous foothills and expansive plains of the Domaine Saint- Félix des Toureilles are exceptionally beautiful, and set in an ideal location for winegrowing. Its close proximity to the Mediterranean Sea allows for a lower temperature harvest, which lets the aromas in the fruit preserve. The deep red color of this Saint-Chinian blend is complimented by hints of terracotta, cooked strawberries, and wild herbs. Terroir: Relatively poor clay-limestone soil, naturally limiting the yield. The Syrah vines are planted on a plateau of 330 feet above sea level, the Grenache and Mourvèdre vines are on a hillside facing south, in one of Saint-Chinian’s most precocious regions.
Deep red color with hints of terracotta. Powerful on the nose, marked by cooked strawberry, blackcurrant and wild herbs. The first impression is supple and subtle, growing into a full and well-structured expression on the palate and ending with a long aromatic finish dominated by notes of dark figs, blackberries and spices.
