A 50/50 blend of Carignan and Grenache from clay-calcareous terroir in the Southeastern corner of France, making for a juicy, cherry-berry wine with a serious kick of minerality, and noticeable, albeit fine and ripe tannins. The vines range in age from 20 years to an astonishing 120 years old, and they've been farmed organically since 2007. Agnès and Alain Carrere have worked with Tom Lubbe, winemaker at Domaine Matassa for many vintages; they want their vines to be a sanctuary for plants and animals, and use just a touch of sulfur.
