Château Carignan is located at Carignan de Bordeaux, 10km to the east of Bordeaux. The estate lies over 150 hectares, 65 of which are planted with vines. The vines lie on south facing clayey-limestone hillsides covered with stony gravel. The dominant grape variety, as for the other right bank Appellations (Saint Emilion and Pomerol), is Merlot. This variety is in its element on the clayey limestone hillsides and offers supple, well-rounded and highly fruity wines. The grapes for the Château Carignan wines are hand harvested, machine harvesting is used for the other wines. Maturing is in 100% new oak casks for the Château Carignan Prima and in one or maximum two wine casks for the Château Carignan. The entire production is estate bottled. – Description from HeatherV

  • Finding myself a little more curious as to what's going on at this price point lately, with neighbors looking to me for advice, and I did hear BLM's call recently as well.So two regions came to mind, not only for reasonable pricing, but for good overall quality potential. The Languedoc in the South of France, and Etna Rosso from the volcanic soi... Read More

  • Château de Cabriac Corbières 2013

Flavors that are fleshy, medicinal Earthy/herbal notes, tea leaf astringency, and a medium body. Smooth finish and on the palate, the alcohol is well hidden and after the swa... Read More

  • Barathym de la Garigue d'Aumelas 2014

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London's Kensington for £9.90.It is from the Languedoc appellation in the south of France. Languedoc is a very large area stretching from the Rhone delta to the Spanish border which got AOC status in the 1980's although viticulture here goes back to before the Romans. Languedoc is responsible for about... Read More

  • Chateau Carignan Cadillac Cotes de Bordeaux 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This wine from the Cadillac Region of the Cotes de Bordeaux is simply stunning for the price and provenance; the secret is not just the 2010 vintage, but is the lower Merlot content (70%) which allows for more backbone. There is a lot of soft oak tannin (will age a further 3-5 years) resting on a bed of rich blackberry and wet loam. Finish is q... Read More

  • Chateau d'Oupia Minervois 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A very pleasant wine with some nice fruit, if not a lot of length. Berries, plum and a little spice. A good value, even at the $18 I spent in VA. Read More

    Wine review by martins2002


  • Cotes du Rhone. It’s a surprisingly well known wine in a world where the wines people are generally more comfortable with come with varietal designations as opposed to regional ones. Sure there are Chianti, and Bordeaux, but how many other regional appellations are most people familiar with? And is there any other that is exclusively focused on ... Read More

  • Château Beauchene Cotes du Rhone Grande Reserve 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A hint of leathery funk greets the nose followed by lovely layered aromas of dried mushroom, baking spice, candied violet, strawberry, juniper and beef blood. A little weighty and plush in the mouth, this feels just a bit clumsy while it delivers light if fresh flavors of red fruits, raspberry and strawberry with hints of rhubarb and almost a be...
