Les Petites Mises are based just to the northwest of Beziers in the Languedoc region of Southern France. Nathalie and Etienne farm four hectares with some over their vines over 100 years old. Their land has also been farmed organically for over 30 years.
The grapes for their wines are fermented in upturned oak barrels before maturation in glass demijohns; very cool! The wines are made with zero additions.
En Face is 100% Shiraz from 30 y/o vines. The wine has a lovely delicate perfume of spice, plump fruits and dried herbs. The spice and savoury notes wash across the palate before a finish of fine tannins.
