Product Description

A grape varietal rarely feted on the award’s circuit, this sumptuously elegant wine demonstrates just how exceptional Carignan can be when cultivated from low yielding old vines and treated with necessary skill. Grown in the high altitude vineyards, on vines that are up to 50-years-old, the Carignan grapes for this richly flavoured wine are gently ripened by the cooling winds from the north and west. A very worthy Decanter Regional Gold medal winner, this is modern French winemaking at its absolute best, producing a multi-dimensional, exceedingly dry wine that has luscious helpings of cassis, liquorice and complemented by lashings of black fruit flavours. It won in an over £15 category and yet here it’s yours for a smidgeon below £12.
