    Le Soula, Rouge 2014

    A trio of grapes (Carignan, Syrah and Grenache Noir) harvested from vines ageing between 22 and 69 years old make up this wine.  It was aged for 22 months in a combination of steel tanks, wooden vats and smaller demi-muids before bottling.  It has a finesse that is unexpected and a moreish funk that deepens the ripe, dark berries and figs and charred earth notes. 

    A project created in 2001 by Gerard Gauby, Mark Walford and Roy Richards. Gerard Gauby was convinced that the old vines at Fenouilledes located on the heights at the foot of the Pyrenees benefited from a cooler climate and had the potential to produce wines of really high quality. At 650 metres above sea level these vines are some of the highest in France.

    Today le Soula is owned by Mark, and Wendy Paillé runs the estate and winemaking. They have been organic since the outset and biodynamic since 2008. The wines are renowned for their purity, vitality and indeed character.
