About Mas Foulaquier

Winemaker Pierre Jéquier, a native of Switzerland and formerly an architect, created Mas Foulaquier in 1998 following an exhaustive search for his dream wine estate. Situated in the most northerly corner of Languedoc's most northerly appellation, Pic Saint-Loup, the 8ha of existing vines were at the time just 8 years old but happened to be planted on some great terroir. Now, at more than 25 years of age, those vines are the source of a quite brilliant set of wines. Pierre's wife and fellow winemaker, Blandine Chauchet, joined the team in 2003, bringing with her the ownership of a further 3ha of 50+ year-old Grenache and Carignan in the lieu-dit of "Les Tonillières". The vines are certified organic, and since 2007, are also certified biodynamic by Demeter. In the cellar, the wines all are raised in Foulaquier's signature, low intervention, style.

Tasting Notes

The upper end of medium bodied, this is a wine with layers of complexity: liquorice, black fruits, earthy undertones and a herbal nature. The tannins are rounded and ripe and the finish is beautifully long. Heaven for the Languedoc wine fan.
