Bernard Magrez La Franchise Pierres Fendues des Terres du Sud 2019
Other Reds | France
Is there a better value in the world than the south of France right now? We think not (although Argentinian malbec might give it a run). The new ‘19 Pierres Fendues des Terres du Sud from the Languedoc-Roussillon flat out DELIVERS. Rich, juicy, and far more complex than any $12 wine has the right to be! At HALF OFF?
Bernard Magrez is simply a force of nature in the wine world. He owns 42+ wineries, including several Bordeaux legends, like Chateau Pape Clement and Fombrauge. What you get here is the same winemaking team that produces 100-point Pape Clement, working with pristine fruit grown on the Mediterranean coast instead of the Atlantic coast. Same expertise, attention to detail, and technical know-how as Pape Clement, just different terroir. The results are stunning. This is easy to love, hard to put down, and one that you’ll wish you got more of!
A blend of syrah and merlot, it’s juicy and packed with plums, raspberries, and cherries, with a sweet herb note, mocha, and baking spice...just flowing and juicy, with a finish that ushers in a sanguine mineral edge, with undertones of pomegranate tea. All this for 50% OFF and the dashingly low price of just $11.95. This is a perfect cellar defender to have on hand for the holidays.
