The Domaine Saint Antonin, a family estate with 25 hectares of vines, is located in the village of Cabrerolles, in the midst of the AOC Faugères, one of the most prestigious AOC of Languedoc. The vineyards of the approximately 2100 hectares of the AOC, growing exclusively on slate, are spread over seven communities, situated within a wild, unspoilt countryside.
The Cuvée Magnoux takes its name from an old vineyard planted with Mourvèdre, which forms the heart of this Cuvee. The wine is concentrated and very harmonious, especially thanks to its surprisingly fresh acidity, minerality and fine tannins. Subtle, well-integrated wood notes enrich the bouquet, which is dominated by spices (cinnamon, pepper), liquorice and ripe black fruits, as well as a slightly gamey note, which fits well into the smell of wild herbs. Generous and harmonious on the palate, with lots of fruits and spices.
