The vineyard plots of Domaine Vila Voltaire are surrounded by the surrounding scrubland, oaks and almond trees. The Domaine's vineyard is located between the towns of Cazedarnes and Puisserguier, in the south of the geographical area of AOP Saint-Chinian.
Stéphane and Cécile, the two winemakers of the Vila Voltaire, have fallen in love with these marked and intense landscapes, typical of the Languedoc and the Béziers hinterland. Soils of clay, limestone, sandstone and bauxite offer a wide range of colors (white, pink, red, ocher), sliced by the green of the trees and the surrounding nature.
The vintage La Faute du Domaine Vila Voltaire evokes a memory, a time since gone. The time when our two winemakers could not yet declare wines with a Saint-Chinian Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée, because we did not have parcels declared on our AOC lands. Thing made in 2014! The purchase of these vines, established and declared in the appellation, have since allowed them to make red wines in Saint-Chinian (Les Orchis du Mazet and La Faute).
La Faute is a predominantly red wine with a 35-year-old Syrah and old parcels of Grenache Noir.
The color is dense, intense with garnet reflections. On the nose, La Faute develops complex and diversified aromas: rhubarb, mint, zan, blackcurrant, boxwood, truffle, cocoa, undergrowth, ripe fruits ...
On the palate, this red wine from Saint-Chinian is full-bodied, fleshy and generous. Its large volume encompasses the palate of a tender and delicate juice.
A red wine from Saint-Chinian to be decanted before serving (between 1:30 to 2:30 in advance). Also make sure to reserve the wine before serving in a room where the temperature is between 14 and 16 ° C, in order to maintain a serving temperature when tasting between 17 and 18 ° C maximum.
La Faute accompanies with harmony a duck with olives, beef tournedos with thyme sauce, a shoulder of roasted lamb.
