Domaine du Météore, Les Orionides, Faugères, France 2009

Rating: 17/20pts
A  meteor crater marks this terrain hence the property’s name – indeed  most of the cuvées are also labelled in honour of meteor showers.  Powerful but stately, this is full of vibrant black fruits and toasty  oak, making it a comfort wine tailormade for wet and windy evenings.
Price: £12.50 Stone Vine & Sun
Alc 14%
Taster: Christelle Guibert
