Domaine Binet Jacquet is a small organic and biodynamic wine producer in the Languedoc. It is in the sub-region called Faugeres that is inland, close to the Cevennes mountains. It is a remote an empty landscape and the soil is dominated by schist (slate).
Magnus Reuterdahl, who writes for BKWine Magazine, recently had the opportunity to taste three of the wines at a launch tasting of the domaine in Sweden. The wines he tasted were:
2010 Domaine Binet-Jacquet Faugères, 50 % grenache, 20 % syrah, 20 % carignan & 10 % mourvèdre
2009 Domaine Binet-Jacquet Faugères Réserve, 40 % mourvèdre, 40 % grenache, 10 % syrah & 10 % carignan
2009 Domaine Binet-Jacquet Faugères Grande Reserve, 40 % mourvèdre, 40 % grenache, 10 % syrah & 10 % carignan
Magnus thoroughly recommended all three of these wines. If you want to want to know more about the Domaine Binet Jacquet and read Magnus’ tasting notes on the wines, swap over to the Swedish version of this post and use Google Translate. (Unless you read Swedish of course.)
The wines are imported to Sweden by the importer Caviste SE.
