REGION: Roussillon, France
VARIETIES: Syrah, Grenache, Carignan
Michel Chapoutier’s continual pursuit of great terroir took him south from the Rhone to the Roussillon in 2000, where he bought land in the village of Latour de France, known for its stony soil terraces and rich geological background. Here, incredibly old vines with low yields deliver minerality and complexity for Carignan, Grenache and Syrah vines. Hand-harvested Carignan, Grenache and Syrah grapes reveal a well-structured, warm wine very much in the spirit of the Roussillon.
