The Domaine d’Aupilhac Lou Maset Languedoc Rouge is made in the ancient village of Montpeyroux in the Languedoc. Here is home to one of our favorite producers, Sylvain Fadat at Domaine d’Aupilac. The Fadat family has managed their craggy, limestone-terraced vineyards for three generations. After World War 2 the wine industry in Montpeyroux was in shambles and co-ops were the primary way of life. The Fadat family had the backbone to strike out as an independent producer and started bottling their own wine in 1989. They’ve muscled it out and completed the three year process for organic certification and achieved biodynamic certification in 2014. We recommend all of their wines, but this post is about the Lou Maset Languedoc Rouge. A blend of 40% Grenache, 40% Cinsault, 10% Carignan, 5% Syrah, 5% Alicante Bouchet and ages beautifully. And under $20 a bottle. Try and beat it.
