The 2019 is sourced from a very special parcel of over 100-year-old vines in Nezingnan l’Eveque (east of Beziers). This “Old Vines Series” release Carignan is a real treat. Large pudding stones cover the floor of the vineyard; gently warming the fruit, ensuring full ripeness and flavours. A combination of handpicking, extremely low yields, minimal traditional winemaking techniques and time in a combination of American and French oak produces this wine of fantastic concentration.
Alchemy 100 Year Old Vine Carignan, Vin de Pays d’Oc, France 2019
Great, deep, royal purple-black colour, fresh nose of blackcurrants, with thyme and mint notes, intense dark red and black fruits, as well as dark chocolate, joined by the addition of chocolate and treacle toffee on the palate. Very focussed, backed by a strong backbone of rich tannins and a long peppery and savoury finish.
