Carignan 1903 Carignan des Schistes 2016

Such a different carignan. Nothing like the heavy tannic wines of old. Great acidity, dried fruits and fresh herbs. Stunning. — a year ago

60% of the vineyards in the AOP are vinified by La Cave. The AOP is only a couple hundred hectares. We spent a week with them during 2019, and the landscape, the people, the food, and the wine are fabulous.

The Herri Mina wines Martine’s sells by the former Petrus winemaker are vinified, raised, and bottled chez Branna.

Irouléguy Gros Manseng-Petit Manseng Blend 2017

This is a beautiful wine. If only I hadn’t been such a knucklehead and put it in the freezer four nights ago only to forget about it. Huge surprise that after such abuse it was delicious and seemed no worse for wear. Replete with notes of honey, toast, bay and mint, with a rich and luscious mouthfeel and a pleasing streak of acidity. Texturally and aromatically, like a bright and tart Rhone white. — 8 months ago

@Eric @Dawn E. Lol. Let’s chalk it up to science. Turns out a little dip below freezing is not the end of the world for a still white wine.

@Adam Beasley Agreed, really striking qualities! I’ve had minimal experience tasting these varieties so let me know if you have any favorite wines.
