Domaine de l'Ecu

Faust - 2017 - Fred Niger

A brick red robe. A charming, expressive nose, with notes of fig, quince, fresh apricot and bitter orange peel. The attack is clean and pure.A very dry, taut wine whose aromas develop mid-palate, becoming only more charming and enjoyable. Smooth tannins and lovely volume. A deep and delicate wine, endowed with chiselled fruit and notes of sweet spices.

No fining, no filtration, and no sulphur added.
