Domaine D’Aupilhac, Le Carignan

31.45 23.95

Reminiscent of black fruit, with a touch of liquorice and slightly smoky, this is a powerful wine though it always finishes on a clean note. “Le Carignan” is just that, from over 60-year old vines whose grapes are picked very ripe and with low yields. Often a touch rustic when young, it’s powerful slightly smoky with aromas of black fruit and liquorice. As it ages it becomes more complex. It vinifies for 28 days with regular circulation, and matures in casks for 20 months. It is truly a symbol of the essence of the region and its history. Splendid with partridge cooked with chanterelle mushrooms, it also delightful with spicy Japanese dishes and – even – jabugo pata negra.
