Wine Region: Languedoc-Roussillon, Cotes du Roussillon - France
Grape: Blend of Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache Noir and Carignana Noir.
Tasting notes: Bizeul has come a long way since then, and now has a good range of whites, reds and even a rose. As reported by James Lawther MW (Decanter), the Clos des Fees is Bizeul’s “super cuvee” where yields are kept “ridiculously low”. A rather familiar Southern Rhone blend of Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache Noir and Carignana Noir, the Clos des Fees is aged in 100% new oak which is seamlessly integrated.
'Rich black cherries and smoky-toasty oak have fused together into a wondrous whole; it's plush and full-bodied yet complex, nuanced and deceptively easy to drink.'
Expert Rating: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 96/100
About the winery: Described by Jeb Dunnuck as “eccentric, yet dead serious”, Herve Bizeul has had a colourful career – from sommelier to journalist and now a winemaker; not just any winemaker, mind you, but “one of the Roussillon's shining stars” (Joe Czerwinski). In a chance visit to Vingrau because he was “fed up with Paris”, Bizeul was so impressed with the terroir that he decided to buy a parcel of vines to cultivate as a hobby. Without any winemaking experience and guided only by a few friends, Bizeul bottled his inaugural 1998 vintage and managed to sell 7,000 bottles en primeur.
