Another benchmark for the variety is this single vineyard bottling coming from the Roussillon region of France, planted, as the name states, in 1903. It’s a rich, powerful example of Carignan redolent of wild herbs, minerals and dark fruits with more tannic punch that you might typically get from the variety. A wine for the cellar, that shows it’s best from 5 years following the vintage and should continue to age well for another decade at least. It’s a wine that speaks clearly of it’s origins and the small, dark berries of old vine fruit.
