Description

No this is not the new plane of the US Air Force, but a UFO … A pre-phylloxeric carignan plot of more than 130 years of age that makes us travel in the past. The parcel designated in the cadastre “B418”, gives its name to this vintage vinified by Michel Raynaud. It contains a treasure of great rarity: a vine of Carignan which miraculously resisted the destruction of the European vines by the phylloxera, at the end of the 19th. This vineyard is at least 130 years old. Situated in the Aude, in the commune of Boutenac, it benefits from one of the best terroirs in the world for the Carignan. Because of its great age, its roots plunge deep into the soil, giving it a great resistance to drought, and gives to the sap, then the grape, depth of aromas and taste. It is cultivated in geoculture.

Bruno Quenioux opinion

“This wine is carpentered with fine tannins, aromas of red fruits – cherry, raspberry and blackberry, floral notes – garrigue, bay-tree and smoke-almonds.
Duck with olives and artichokes, stewed beef with orange zest and ceps. Serve at 17°C.”
