Polished wine. Interesting. I like it from a postural, viticultural standpoint but the end result for me is slightly too acidic and lacking intensity of aromas and flavours and the finish is only medium. It’s a very nice wine and pleasurable, but for me, it’s lacking a bit of good ol funk to cost 30-35$. #carignan #sonoma — 7 months ago
First red made by Olivier Legranger, former enologist for Xavier Vins. Blackberry, mulberry, espresso. Displays an intensity and vigor that comes from a big hit of 60 y/o Carignan. Not your usual simple, grapey Ventoux! #domaineducolibri #ventoux #carignan #grenache #rhone — 2 years ago
Blood-ruby, undiluted tenor from rim to rim. Blackberry-cran with a smoky coat, violets, raspberry reduction, wild nettle, suede, rose petal, dried cherry, applewood, and gingerly ginger, spare cedar, finest snuff, cherry pit and damp clove spiced nose. All with a slight memory of campfire. Black plum, cedar, violet, dried, sour cherry, dark leather, peppercorn, dried cranberry and red currant, cinnamon apple, fine, grippy tannins that integrate into the whole with a pleasing sense of herbs and bitters, sage and lavender. Did not expect this complexity from carignan, and floral notes that evoke like Nebbiolo. Class. .

#frenchwine #redwine #languedoc #frenchredwine the #grenache, #syrah and #carignan are having a fruity party in my mouth. The perfect wine to drink at this transitional time of the year. Notes of Strawberry and raspberry provide the foundation and topped off with a hint of minerals. Very affordable, 2 thumbs up for this one! 👍🏻👍🏻 #lesdarons well done #jeffcarrel — 2 years ago
Vacationing in Europe is all about intriguing wine discoveries. Here’s a #corbieres red blend of semi-dried #syrah , #grenache and #carignan. First pour reveals a rich nose of raisins with a touch of toasted oak and vanilla. It’s a full-bodied red and like many wines of France, I find it really improves after a day after uncorking. This wine held up well paired with lamb masala curry. — 2 years ago
