Founded in 1995, Calmel & Joseph is a négociant house specializing in Languedoc-Roussillon wines from private wineries from across the region. Over the years, they have built close personal relationships with a large number of growers from all appellations. Convinced of the extraordinary potential of this region, oenologist, Laurent Calmel, and Jerome Joseph work together on the vinification, blending and ageing of wines with the common purpose of demonstrating the little known, yet unique quality of these Mediterranean terroirs.

 

Low yielding vines, Syrah (60%), Grenache (30%), Carignan (10%).

 

Grapes are picked by hand and benefit from a long maceration period. The Carignan is vinified by semi-carbonic maceration which consists of destemming without crushing the grapes. The Grenache and the Syrah are fermented traditionally with regular punching down to maximise colour and flavour extraction. No wood is used, the wine being aged in concrete tanks.

 

Crimson in colour with black olive and tapenade nose. The palate is full and fruity with spice and good minerality. The integrated tannins are extremely elegant.
