About

Rating:

92

Drawn from several 60- to 100-year-old plots of Carignan, the 2018 IGP Côtes Catalanes Carignan Vieilles Vignes spent a year in vat and barrel (a small proportion new), but it remains stunningly vibrant, fresh and unencumbered by oak. Raspberry fruit picks up hints of garrigue, green peppercorns and even floral notes, while the full-bodied palate is silky and smooth and the flavors linger on the finish. Even if you're not a huge Carignan fan, this wine is almost guaranteed to convert you.
