REGION: Roussillon, France
VARIETIES: Grenache 60%, Carignan 40%
INFO: Grapes are from spectacular mountain vineyards at 240-280m altitude. This is truly “heroic viticulture”, with old bush vine, 40-80 years old, perched on steep rolling sites at the base of the cliffs on the northern edge of the Agly Valley, near Queribus, on classic schist and gres (sandy) schist soils. Vines are grown on the limits of each location, unforced and wild.Hand-harvested a little earlier than most in the region. Wild fermentation, minimal intervention and then stored in small concrete vats. No oak is used. An exceptionally fine example of what the Roussillon region can deliver.
This, is a blend of Grenache and Carignan, a wine of power but not at the cost of elegance and finesses. A beautiful balance of dark and light. Grenache brings with it huge dark brooding fruit, great concentration and rich texture, whilst Carignan adds freshness, acidity, and bright fruit which marks out this very singular wine.
