Highlights: Domaine Le Cros Marcillac Lo Sang del Païs

This is such a characterful wine, and it’s one I’ve been buying for years. It’s still delivering, as this latest release shows.

Domaine Le Cros Marcillac Lo Sang del Païs 2019 France
13% alcohol. This is a varietal Fer Servadou from the southwest of France. Fresh, juicy and vivid with lovely floral black cherry fruit, some sappy green notes and a bit of raspberry. The palate is juicy and fruity but also has some pepper, and also some meat, spice and iodine notes, as well as some iodine and blood notes adding savoury interest. It’s supple, fresh, juicy and amazingly drinkable. There’s a lovely fruitiness here, but also some seriousness. 91/100 (£9.50 The Wine Society)
