Faugères "Jour Fruit," Mas Onésime - 2021

Item # 47400 750mL

This dry red blend of Cinsault and Syrah Noir take its name from the biodynamic day of the month when this wine was drawn off the skins. Fresh, and red fruit-forward, the winery believes this timing enhances that fruit character once bottled. Pair this medium-bodied red with Quiche Lorraine.

Staff Pick Notes

In the theory of biodynamics this wine is best enjoyed on the fruit day of the biodynamic calendar when the moon is in any of the fire signs: Aires, Leo and Sagittarius. Well, I missed this day by one day, but this wine was still fresh, complex and vibrant. Tart cranberry and fresh raspberry are just a short list of the wonderful fruit on the palate. Fresh, purple flowers, violets and lilacs showcase this wine's floral aromatics, while a smoky lapsang souchong tea note adds an earthy complexity. Medium plus bodied, incredible freshness and resolved tannins make this an accessible wine on whatever day you drink it. I will be trying it again, but on a fruit day with a herb crusted, roast pork loin.

Shiraz

We'd like to clear this up once and for all: the Shiraz grape is genetically identical to Syrah. Australian winemakers put "Shiraz" on the map (and, many would argue, vice versa), and the term is now used throughout much of the New World. Let it never be said, however, that Shiraz and Syrah are the same thing: the region in which the grape is grown determines much about the flavor of the wine it will produce. Typically, New World Shiraz yields bigger, fruitier wines than the the peppery Syrahs...
