Chateau Figuires, ‘Tempus’ Rouge
Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Mourvèdre
Opulent nose, typically Languedoc with its aromas of scrubland, including notes of rosemary. In addition, the wine exudes beautiful spicy aromas and ripe fruit, such as plum and blackberry. This nose is supported by an animal weft with leather notes. Rounded on the palate with a fine and measured expression. Despite the very Mediterranean climate of La Clape, the balance is very well achieved. The tannins provide a structure with a fine and frank grain. To these are added charming floral aromas, dried violets and black pepper. Of good length, the tasting ends with smoky notes and aromas of caramel. An ideal wine to accompany a 7-hour lamb, beef in sauce, a platter of Iberian charcuterie.
