Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
Purple colour with ruby reflections. Spicy, roasted nose. Woody notes, opens on roasted black fruits, cold tobacco. Supple attack full and well-balanced. Straightforward lengthening, character on spices, roasted. Good persistence on black cherry aromas.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Domain and appellation
The Château de Ciffre, a beautiful 70 hectare estate, 33 of which are vines, is the only property in the region to have a Faugères PDO, a Saint Chinian PDO and a Languedoc PDO all at the same time. It completes the diversity of the terroirs worked by Maison Lorgeril. Entirely renovated by the previous owner, the one-piece estate is a haven of peace in the nearby foothills of the Causse. Nicolas and Miren de LORGERIL took over this picturesque site in 2007, a former windmill, totally unspoilt and isolated, between scrublands, olive trees (0.5 has), vines and mountains. Since then they have been working to take the estate to "the summits".
