Les Bancèls is harmonious and fresh, yet full and complex, with four different grape varieties, the smoothness provided by the schist terroir, and a persistence that ranks it among the best wines of Faugères and beyond.

Ripe, poachingon-the-stove plums and damsons with a frisson of black pepper and dried thyme. And petrichor. Petrichor on the nose and the taste of cold rain on hot black rocks. Stunning minerality. It glitters in the mouth like mica embedded in coal. Such fine, refined, arching tannins. And then, on the end a little grace note of bitterness, kalamata olive with salted lemon peel, and it feels as if someone gently bit the back of your neck.

  • Ruby red color
  • Fresh, red and black fruited wine with terrific acidity and notes of white pepper
  • The palate is equally fresh and soft with blueberry and a strong undercurrent of the garrigue so prevalent in the south
  • Lamb
  • Grilled Beef
  • Risotto
