About

91-93

What looks like another great vintage here, the 2015 AOP Languedoc les Darons is made from 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Carignan; grapes were completely destemmed, and fermented and aged all in concrete tanks. It sees absolutely no oak whatsoever. This medium to full-bodied, plump, rounded, downright sexy 2015 has lots of blueberry, violets, and jammy black cherry aromas and flavors; it has terrific purity of fruit, good acidity and an overriding sense of elegance. If it came from a more prestigious appellation in the southern Rhone, it would go for three times the price.

Product Description:

"An accessible wine with loads of character, "Les Darons" is packed with ripe, red and dark fruit aromas, with plenty of spice and a streak of underlying minerality. Enjoy this classic, unoaked red with a wide range of everyday meals." Winery Tasting Notes "Grenache and Carignan have long been cultivated in Southern France and represent the "forefathers" of the Languedoc Appellations red wines. An homage crafted from old vines Granache and Carignan (averaging 40 + years in age) with a dollop of Syrah, this wine was subsequently labeled as "Les Darons," the affectionate expression for "The Parents" in the Parisian suburbs where winemaker Jeff Carrel was born." Winery Information "It is a consulting structure in identity communication, marketing strategy, positioning and development, coaching and training, created in 2007. It is specialized in the accompaniment of winemakers companies and wine wholesalers to improve the valorization of their products and their characteristics. This structure participates in the development of very specific products with strong identities. It is in this sense that we work with growers or other dynamic developers in the creation and customization of wine ranges of those: acquire a range of wines to correspond to its image, its history, its land and its culture..."
