40% Carignan, 30% Grenache, 30% Syrah
“It’s another winner from this estate that offers a supple, sexy and medium to full-bodied personality to go with great aromas and flavors of blackberry and black cherry fruit, roasted herbs, leather and licorice. Sweetly fruit, beautifully textured and with terrific purity of fruit.” Jeb Dunnock, Wine Advocate
Vin de France
Carignan is KING of red grapes here! Totally adapted to this rough climate this is a stunning varietal if you keep yield low. Dark red fruit, leather tones and smashing fresh finish. Carignan is seeing something of a renaissance as old vines (and these are over 100 years old) and small yields make a lovely, concentrated, big wine. Only 200 cases produced.
AOP Terrasses Du Larzac
49% Syrah, 47% Grenache, 4% Carignan

IGP St Guilhem Le Desert
55% Carignan, 45% Syrah

Côtes du Roussillon
55% Syrah, 35% Carignan, 10% Grenache
