Already recognized as specialists in the wines of Languedoc-Roussillon, our passion for the diversity in the region's grape varieties led us to create the «Les Jamelles Cépage Rare» collection which is aimed at introducing wine lovers to a selection of heritage, forgotten, or little-known varietals that make up the viticultural heritage of southern France. These wines are the result of a long quest that allowed us to discover vineyards in which the vines thrive and flourish. We learned to determine their optimal yields and how to best vinify the grapes.
The grapes are harvested by hand and vinified in stainless steel tanks under monitored temperatures. Traditional maceration lasts 15 days. 10% of the wine is aged in new oak barrels for added complexity.
This elegant, ruby coloured wine tinged with red boasts a spicy nose with hints of liquorice and notes of red and black fruit. It is soft and well-structured on the palate with solid fruity flavours and fine tannins that give this wine its elegant length.
