Our winemaker Guillaume Letang went on a voyage to vineyards unknown to source these grapes. While he is used to driving all over Languedoc Roussillon for his work he had never ventured this far south. One day curiosity got the better of him and he went to explore “the wild landscape” between Corbieres and the Mediterranean. Stainless steel was used to maintain the freshness and purity of fruit from the old, bush-vine Carignan.
The small yields from this area and its unique soils and landscape give distinctive wines with personality. This wine is intense and complex with dark, rich fruit, delicate tannins and smooth mouthfeel. As Guillaume says, it’s a “must taste” wine!
Duck confit or shoulder of lamb. As a vegetarian option lentil and bean stew would compliment the wine just as well.
