Domaine Carobelle, IGP Méditerrannée, Rouge, 2017

Story

The wine
This estate is located in the foothills of the Dentelles de Montmirail in the heart of southern France, between 300 and 500 metres in altitude. Domaine de Carobelle has been producing pure, natural, elegant wines for several generations. Grown organically, with passion and rigour by Jean Paul Grangeon, the old Grenache and Syrah vines produce a balanced, rich, and complex wine with intense black fruit and spicy flavours.
Terroir
This IGP takes root on a clay limestone soil.
Vinification
The vines are treated exclusively with natural plant protection products. This organic approach enables us to produce a healthy wine that also respects the grapes’ intrinsic quality. These are picked when fully ripe and subsequently fermented and aged using a subtle combination of traditional and modern techniques.
Varietals
Carignan
Grenache noir
Merlot
Syrah

Tasting notes
Deep garnet-red colour with a rich, aromatic bouquet of blackcurrant, fresh grapes, and thyme. Well-balanced and fresh on the palate with fruity flavours and hints of garrigue.
Food pairing
Perfect with herbed guinea fowl, roast filet mignon of pork with olives, and simply with nibbles or any light meal.
