François Aubry at Domaine la Fontude
2005 Entremond, Vin de Pays du Lac de Salagou from Carignan, Aramon and Grenache Noir is rounded and stony, with lovely fresh fruit and a long finish. 16/20 7€
Francois Aubry’s white is a pure Terret blanc which does not conform to any vin de pays regulations, so is simple vin de table, and none the worse for that. Most organic wine growers seem to have a rather cavalier approach to French bureaucracy. The wine is light golden in colour, with a fresh nose, and intriguing layers of herbal fruit on the palate, with dry finish and fresh acidity. One of those wines that leaves you wondering….. 16/20 7€.
