Marcillac ‘Lo Sang del Pais’, Domaine du Cros
Marcillac is a tiny obscure appellation near Clairvaux in Aveyron comprising some eight growers. The wines here are made exclusively from the Mansois grape, otherwise known as Fer or Fer Servadou in Gaillac.
This is a wine of real character and exactly the kind of simple but satisfying wine that goes with food so well.
It has loads of juicy raspberry and cherry flavour, combined with a certain savouriness that brings to mind iron and blood! But it’s delicious! It’s a wine that needs food but do give it a try, it’s a long time favourite of ours.
A great wine for roast pork belly, lamb chops or a cassoulet type thing.
