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

  • 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...

  • As we spend time this summer exploring new wine regions it’s worth pointing out that these endeavours need not be expensive. Of course some of the best discoveries are those that are easy on the wallet. Wines that over deliver at their price points and expand our understanding, and enjoyment of the fruit of the vine. Case in point: the Languedoc... Read More

  • De Maris Carignan Coteau de Peyriac 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Old vine Carignan, certified Organic by Ecocert AB, blended with 20% Certified Demeter Biodynamic Grenache. A touch stinky on the nose with natural aromas of barnyard and dry grasses. Smooth in the mouth with early mineral notes and hints of chocolate and black cherry skin. While relatively lean and focused this turns a touch chewy on the midpa... Read More
