Read more here about Domaine Frédéric Brouca - a ‘local guy’ living every wine-lovers dream as he and his wife make a positive splash in the world of fine wine! Fred and Elaine purchased 25 acres of 30 to 50-year-old vines in 2012 and in 2013 they produced their first wine. The first two reviewed below are from these vineyards.

**** drink or cellar 
Frédéric Brouca ‘Champs-Pentus’ Faugères 2013
AOC Faugères, France $20.00 13.5% alcohol
From organic, 30-year-old vines of hand-harvested Syrah, Grenache and Carignan planted in metamorphic and schist soil in the Languedoc-Roussillon, this bolts from the glass with lifted aromas of sandalwood, savoury herb and rich, dark berry fruit. It’s round and plush on entry showing ripe berry fruit, sprigs of herbs and a solid line of tangy acidity on the palate persisting through the rustic finish. It’s unfined and unfiltered, mid weight with good structure—aerate/decant a couple of hours before pouring. (Vic Harradine)

****1/2 drink or cellar 
Frédéric Brouca ‘Clos Sauveplane’ Faugères 2013
AOC Faugères, France $30.00 13.5% alcohol
Ripe, dark cherry, local wild herbs and exotic incense herald a medium-weight, delicately textured tapestry of flavour caressing the palate with depth and complexity—ripe mulberry and bramble berry interwoven with roasted herb and tangy red currant. It’s balanced on a pin with good purity of fruit and oodles of charm. It finishes lengthy with well-integrated fruit, acidity and tannin. This flagship, 50-year-old Mourvèdre and 30-year-old Syrah blend from isolated walled vineyards on an ancient plateau, was farmed organically, hand-picked, left unfined and unfiltered—it’s fine wine at a very good price. (Vic Harradine)

Frédéric Brouca ‘Terracaë’ Cahors 2012
AOC Cahors, France $17.00 13.5% alcohol
Aromas of dark cherry and spice introduce a lively, juicy stream of dark berry fruit, toasty notes and wisps of caramel on the palate. It’s medium bodied with good mouth feel and a balanced finish and aftertaste that layers on savoury tang. It’s good to go now and pours well with pasta in tomato sauce or meat-laden pizza.
