SKU : FR09


Produced by Les Producteurs Réunis co-operative in the Languedoc.


Made from carefully selected fruit from 40 year old Carignan vines this wine is a lovely balance of traditional and modern. The Carignan is very typical of this part of southern France but is rarely seen on its own – it is more usually used in blends with other varieties such as Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault etc.


Modern wine making techniques, particulary the use of temperature-controlled stainless steel in fermentation, results in a very fruit driven style with hints of spice and tobacco amid the ripe red berry aromas. The palate is soft and silky with masses of juicy fruit and only a touch of the earthiness so typical of wine from this area.


Look past the slightly wacky label, this is a really impressive and excellent value red wine!
