This Languedoc red blend is more than what meets the eye…
On the surface, the Flo Busch Herault Rouge Pointe du Jour appears to be a muscular Languedoc wine but once you get to know it, that all changes. Bold red fruit gives away to a mineral-driven elegance with this highly complicated blend of Syrah, Carignan and Grenache. The vines are grown in a mixture of blue and yellow limestone and quartz soils and vinified in stainless steel to keep things fresh and lifted.
- Flo Busch originated in 2018, when owner/vigneron Florian Busch moved to the South of France after attending wine school in Germany.
- He chose this region after meeting his wife Paola, an herbalist, who he fell in love with.
- The vineyards here are beautiful and full of life, and one can often find native plants thriving amongst the vines like native fennel and wild arugula.
- Florian is all about picking as early as possible to avoid creating flabby, high alcohol wines.
