Laurent Miquel Tears of the Fairies
Château Cazal Viel is home to an underground cave where a precious spring flows. Legend has it that fairies live near this spring and preserve its purity. Until the end of the last century, women from the neighbouring villages used to meet at the spring to wash their clothes and share gossip. According to the legend, their wickedness and quarrels caused a lot of sorrow to the fairies and sometimes you could hear them crying...
Clay-limestone, yields of 25hl/ha
Vinification and maturing
Sustainable cultivation, 5-wire trellising
Destemming, long vatting with temperature control of fermentation, fining, light tangential filtration before bottling.
Ageing for 14 months in new French oak barrels.
A wine with a deep garnet colour and intense red reflections. The nose is complex and intense with toasted notes that evolve towards aromas of vanilla, fresh almonds and dried fruit. The harmony between the wood and fruit notes is superb. The palate is opulent and concentrated with silky tannins. A wonderful balance with a beautiful length in the mouth
The quality of its ageing and the maturity of its tannins allow this wine to be kept for 15 years. It is recommended to decant the wine 2 to 3 hours before serving at a temperature of 17°C.
Larmes des Fées is the ideal wine for leg of lamb, beef, barbecues and game. Also perfect with cheese
