Carignan – Le Beillou
Terroir(s)See the interactive terroirs map
This Carignan comes from century-old vines planted in soil composed of layers of clay and eroded rocky outcrops in the southwestern Minervois region. The roots of these old vines plunge deep down to reach the moisture they need to ensure that the grapes ripen slowly and evenly.
The grapes are handpicked and collected in small crates in early October, once the grapes have fully matured. They are then sorted on a vibrating table.
This Carignan offers an exquisite variety of aromas and flavours: dark fruit (blueberry, blackberry), floral notes (elderflower) and a spicy finish (pepper) with a delicate hint of menthol. Its length on the palate and pleasing freshness are a lovely surprise. Rich and opulent, this cuvée offers a gorgeous expression of this challenging varietal.
Food & Wine
This Carignan may be enjoyed as an accompaniment to salt pork with lentils, Bolognese-style lasagne, game, wild boar stew or filet of venison with cranberries, or alongside a cheese platter.
