Domaine d'AUPILHAC Aupilhac red 2020 bottle 75cl

Sylvain Fadat started out by working the family's 5 hectares of vines, with the means at hand: vinification in tanker vats, limited ageing, bottling by hand... Convinced of the potential of the Montpeyroux appellation, he gradually enlarged his estate, built a winery, planted vines, converted to biodynamic viticulture...

Thirty years later, with his wife Désirée, he runs a 25-hectare estate, spread over two very distinct terroirs: the "hot" Aupilhac, made up of south-facing terraces on the edge of the garrigue, planted with Mediterranean grape varieties (mourvèdre and carignan) capable of withstanding the summer heat; and the "cool" Cocalières, a natural volcanic amphitheater situated at an altitude of 350 meters and facing north, home to the more sensitive grape varieties (syrah, grenache, marsanne...).

The estate has a two-star rating in the Revue du Vin de France guide, which praises the Fadats' "energy, respect for the environment and the precision of their wines".

Dense and suave, Aupilhac is the archetypal Languedoc wine, with its caressing aromas of garrigue and spices.

The 2020 vintage is rated 92/100 by the Revue du Vin de France (Guide 2024)

    A traditional Montpeyroux wine from the last century, Le Gris is an original blend of grenache gris, carignan gris and clairette rose. More akin to a full-bodied, textured white wine than a rosé, both in color and aroma.

    A link between the two terroirs, La Boda blanc is a blend of carignan and clairette from Aupilhac, with rolle, roussanne and marsanne from Cocalières : a well-balanced wine, between aromatic richness and mineral tension.

    The 2021 vintage is one of the Coups de coeur ♥ of the Revue du vin de France, rated 94/100 "2021 fits La Boda white like a glove, with more tension than usual, delicately reduced, toasted and very fresh" (Guide 2024).

    Cocalières, with its long finish, is fresher and racier than Aupilhac, with subtle smoky notes.

    The 2020 vintage is one of the Coups de coeur ♥ of the Revue du vin de France, rated 95/100 "it has its usual breed that will make it go far" (Guide 2024).
