Figuière Méditerranée Red

Figuière is located in La Londe-les-Maures between Marseille and Nice with vineyards that lie just a few hundred meters from the Mediterranean Sea. “There’s a five-degree difference in temperature from our vineyards to those of the interior,” says Magali, “the freshness found in our wines is very singular to the La Londe region.”

Alain Combard purchased the property in 1992 after discovering its cool coastal climate and unique schist soils. “The schist in La Londe seduced my father,” says Alain’s daughter Magali, “schist and the sea make our style.”

Over a period of 25 years, the Combard Family has grown Figuière to its current size of 210 acres. Additionally, Figuière produces an entry-level tier of wines called "Méditerranée" using meticulously selected grapes sourced from négociants. The perfecting touches of maturing and blending are carried out in the domaine’s cellars.

Méditerranée is intended as easy-to-enjoy wine with a soft profile made from a blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Carignan. Vinified in stainless steel tanks and aged for 6 months

Tasting Notes

Figuière aims for tight wines that express the unique terroir of coastal Provence. Méditerranée Rouge is intended as a fresh tasting, juicy and easy-to-enjoy red wine. Aromas and flavors of bright red cherries, wild herbs and earthy forest floor are accompanied by salty minerality.

Food Pairing

Méditerranée Rouge has a bright and refreshing character making it ideally suited to a wide range of foods. Thanks to its medium weight and soft tannins, Le Saint André Red can be served slightly cool and paired with barbequed chicken, burgers and grilled salmon.
