This Sauvignon is from the estate of the Fayet family based close to Narbonne, South West of Beziers in the South of France. This wine isn’t your tropical fruit bomb with residual sugar. It’s crisp and fresh with lovely citrus tones.
Le Fou is made in the Vallee de l’Aude, perhaps France’s most exciting region for affordable French Pinot Noir now. Aude is a larger area that includes some of France’s most famous AOC’s including Corbieries, Fitou and has some great cooler climate vineyards on the foothills of the Pyrennes where Le Fou is grown.
DID YOU KNOW?
Le Fou translates as ‘The Madman’ and what most French thought the original growers were to plant, cultivate and eventually vinify Pinot Noir from the South of France, miles from its ancestral home in Burgundy.
