A return to the 2007 Domaine Saladin, Fan dé Lune


In reviewing my posts I see that it was two and a half years ago that I met Elisabeth Saladin of Domaine Saladin at MacArthur Beverages.  This is a truly historic estate having remained in the same family since the 15th century.  The 2007 Domaine Saladin, Fan dé Lune, Cotes du Rhone Villages represents the fifth vintage effort of the sisters Elisabeth and Marie-Laurence.  At the time I found it the most interesting wine of the group I tasted.  Additional age has made it a soft, cozy wine perfect for a night where you want affordable maturity that does not require constant attention. This wine was purchased at MacArthur Beverages.

2007 Domaine Saladin, Fan dé Lune, Cotes du Rhone Villages – $20
Imported by Williams Corner Wine.  This wine is mostly Mourvedre with some Grenache and Syrah sourced from 40-year-old vines.   The wine was aged for nine months in foudre.  Alcohol 11-14%.  The flavors were subtly mature with a softer entry, racy dark flavored middle, and tannic structure still evident. It finished gentle with a drying nature.  ** Now but will last.
