Foulaquier Orphée 2020
Located in Pic-St-Loup, among the best terroirs in the Languedoc, Foualquier crafts delicious red blends by employing careful biodynamic viticulture. Their wines channel the region’s wildness into exuberant, fruit-and-earth mixtures that are always complex and always polished.
Orphée is a 50/50 blend of Grenache and Syrah. The 2020 Orphée is very representative of the vintage – bursting with juicy ripe fruit and tremendous freshness. Fans of 2020 Red Burgundies will recognize a throughline running south to the Languedoc in this wine. It’s dark and mouthfilling but at 13.5% alcohol remains fresh and very vibrant. The nose shows cassis and raspberry, low funkiness, and hints of thyme and earth. The mouth is sturdy and delicious with southern tannins dripping in fresh, inky fruit. Pour this to accompany grilled meats.
