Grand Carignan 2021
This wine is from a unique, north-east facing plot called “Grand Carignan” which is located half-way up the vineyard, on Ensérune hill facing the Montagne Noire. These Carignan vines are over 45 years old and therefore qualify as old vines.
This and the method winemaking used, produces a wine with a distinctively fresh and fruity palate. Les Parcelles is supple and round with fresh red fruit aromas and mentholated notes in the finish.

Skin contact at controlled temperatures and alcoholic fermentation in vats for three weeks, with regular pumping over to achieve slow extraction. Racking before malolactic fermentation, and then ageing in large oak barrels before bottling.
