Domaine du Météore Le Parangon


Country: France

Region: Faugères

Grapes: Syrah, Grenache

Vintage: 2015

Domaine du Météore is a unique Faugères estate located atop a 200 metre wide crater that was created when a meteorite crashed into the area 10,000 years ago. The low-yielding vines grow in rocky schist soils that force the roots to delve deep in search of nutrients and imbue the wines with pronounced minerality. Winemaking is low intervention with the domaine certified organic and working towards biodynamic certification. 

Le Parangon is Météore's top red cuvée made from Syrah and Grenache aged in Burgundy oak barrels for 3 and a half years. An intense, vivid wine with vibrant notes of cedar, eucalyptus, black pepper and plum.
