Les Farradjales takes its name from an old vineyard set in the high Minervois on rocky, white clay and limestone soils, roughly 12 kilometres uphill from the winery. In this very cool, stoney vineyard, Claux’s 70-year-old Cinsault vines yield only 20 hl/ha. It’s pretty rare to find a straight Cinsault but low yields and poor soil combine to produce a beautiful Languedoc wine. The palate is bright and beautifully pitched. Full of cherry scented fruit, roasted herbs and floral aromatics and flavours. An enticing, supple, juicy and energetic expression of the high Languedoc.
