Languedoc, in Southern France, is a Mediterranean region
with a rich viticulture history and a growing reputation for
making value-driven red blends. Typical varietals in the region include Syrah, Grenache, Carignan and Mourvedre.
French Fusion is made from a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre grapes that are grown in sustainably-farmed, family-owned vineyards in the foothills of the Cevennes. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and then aged for 6 to 8 months before it is bottled with only a gentle filtration.
Lot 21 was 90+ Cellars’ first French wine. It is made by a winery that has origins dating back to the 13th century.
SUSTAINABLY CRAFTED WINE
A medium-bodied, smooth wine with aromas of rich black cherry and blackberry fruit, fresh pepper and roasted coffee. Hints of bittersweet anise and raspberries linger on the finish.
- Alcohol: 14%
- Bottle Size: 750mL
- Varietal: Syrah Grenache Mourvèdre
Pleasantly balanced aromas of spice and fruit anticipate an easy berry punch and dangerously smooth finish. A good wine for any dinner table or just by itself. Would easily pair well with a savory braised beef or Mexican deviled chicken.
As in the past, this Lot 21 wine was quite good; firm texture, mostly without tannins, excellent taste.
French Fusion was the first wine I tried from 90+. From that first bottle it had been my favorite Red!
Just popped this one open tonight for my last night of vacation. Absolutely delicious!! I would highly recommend this wine to anyone.
A very enjoyable wine.
