As with many young French winemakers, he also chose to broaden his experience in Australia, where he was able to vinify one vintage in the Goulburn Valley, working with Marsanne and Syrah in particular.

In 2009 he...

Carignan

Carignan is the grape which really distinguishes the red wines of the Languedoc and Roussillon from those of the southern Rhône (in the latter Grenache is ubiquitous and dominant, and Syrah and Mourvèdre are the preferred blending grapes).

It has been a much maligned grape. For example Jancis Robinson’s Oxford Companion to Wine thunders: "Carignan,...

Mas d'Agamas, Carignan Bleu, IGP Saint-Guilhem-le-Desert, 2019

Carignan Bleu - a variant of Carignan - is named because of the bluish tint the grapes take on when fully ripe. Vincent's grandfather made a massal selection (i.e. taking cuttings) of their vines to replant to keep this clone alive in their vineyards. It makes for a gorgeous purple colour; a bright scent of berries and plums spiked with vanilla; and a surprisingly (for this occasionally rustic grape) lush, well-textured, fleshy mouthful of black plums and spice.

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
