Cypres de Toi Rouge is a smoky, savoury blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah. It's brimming with dark berry fruit accented with thyme, rosemary and minty aromas of the garrigue.
Brambly blue and black fruit with just the right amount of extraction. A present, but pleasant, tannin punctuates the finish. A touch of vegetality brings a layer of intrigue to the otherwise plummy wine.
Laetitia Ourliac & Rodolphe Gianesini farm vines in the northernmost corner ofthe Corbières AOC, where they find their namesake from the Cypress trees that line the route to their domaine. Here they have a dizzying array of trees, vegetables, and herbs alongside their vines. Since 2006 they've been farming organically and have since made the push to "zero-zero" wines (nothing added, nothing taken away) and we're all the happier for it - the wines are wonderfully exact and immensely pleasurable and approachable.
