Domaine du Cros, Marcillac Rouge "Lo Sang del Pais", Southwest, France 2018 100% Fer Servadou (Mansois)
FORREST BERRIES, HERBAL SPICE, CHALK, RESPLENDENTLY RUSTIC From a beautiful, dynamically hilly region bordering the Auvergne comes this deliciously rustic and unspoiled red. Authenticity runs through its veins, and the mystique of this mountainous countryside is its very blood! Made from Mansois (Fer Servadou), an ancient yet lesser-known grape whose flavors of herbs, spice, dried berries, and iron rich terroir imbue in it a complex depth and affinity for "variety meats." It is an untamed wine… Serving Suggestions: Sausages, lamb, offal, firm rich cheeses such as Etorki or Laguiole. Aged beef and mushroom ragu are more conventional foods that would work well.
