Medium ruby with a purple hue. The nose is floral with primarily fruit, dark berries and supple palate, juicy and round, with a good frip and young but ripe tannin, long and fresh finish, appealing fruit and spiciness.

Sourced from a tiny parcel of old vine carignon planted in the most mineral rich site on the already mineral rich property. Intentionally fermented, aged, and bottled as a single varietal as the d’Aboville family is passionate about this often overlooked grape. This is not fermented with carbonic maceration (which is the norm in Languedoc for Carignan). Neutral barrels keep flavors pure and transparent.
