A Carignan Revival
Carignan is a varietal which originates near Catalonia and the Spanish have a good track record of making excellent wines in Aragon, Priorat and Monstant, to name a few. The variety eventually made its’ way over the border in Languedoc Roussillon where the French Catalans decided to give this difficult grape a go. In February’s edition of Decanter, Miquel Hudin gives a great insight into why Carignan is now thriving in the South of France.
Miquel Hudin also mentions the Carignan from Domaine Sainte Croix in the Hautes Corbieres as one of his top picks:
From the Hautes Corbieres area in Languedoc. Dark cherry and prune fruit, crunchy limestone notes, wild forest herbs, touch of mushroom, orange peel and generally fleshed out very well. Fresh fruit on the palate develops with a touch of sweetness, crisp acidity and a lingering finish. DRINK 2020-2025 ALC 14.5%
