Pure Carignan is a Vin de France red wine, 100% Grenache.

The 70 year old vines have a very low yield (18hl/ha). Grapes are harvested by the end of October, by hand, in crates, then are vinified traditionnally with 50 day maceration and punching of the cap twice a day. Minimum pumpings over enable the wine to benefit from a good "oxidoreduction". The wine is bottled 10 months after the harvesting to trap all the aromas.

This is a very expressive wine with a very intense deep ruby colour with shiny glints. The nose is delicate, very complex with cristallized red berries (blackberry), garrigue scents (broom, thyme...) honey, liquorice, fig and spices (pepper). The mouth is furry, full-flavoured with melted tannins, very long, qualified "velvet " by RVF special issue 2005 vintage; it was ranked among the third best Minervois for this vintage.

Best enjoyed served at 14-16° C.
