2018 ROQUETERRE Carignan Vieilles Vignes 75cl (Languedoc, France)
Style - Vibrant
Grapes - Carignan
Tasting - Made from old vines which travel deep into the soil in search of nutrients and minerals, this Carignan has plenty of Southern French character. Despite this rustic charm, it is also a well-balanced and supple red with a touch of elegance.
Isolation Pairing: Checking the batteries in everything, smoke alarm, remote controls, toothbrush and anything else you may possess.
FYI: Winemakers are nervous in ripening Carignan as it is very prone to disease but when done well (like here) it's amazing.
