Les vins des coteaux alpins \ Grape varieties
Grape of Spanish origin, specifically from the Aragon region.
Carignan is part of vine appellations Côtes du Rhône, Languedoc, Corbières, Minervois, Côtes du Roussillon, Côtes de Provence, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, Les Baux de Provence,…
With big yields, carignan gives a low alcoholic wine without characters affirmed, often acid. When it comes from hillsides and produces little, it gives a well-colored wine, robust, powerful, generous, slightly astringent with a bit of bitterness and calling in all cases to age. If you are lucky enough to find a wine 100% carignan, you will take care to open the bottle an hour or two before serving, preferably at a temperature of 15 °, in order that it can release all its aromatic qualities.
Aromas of banana aromas, herbaceous notes and mineral.
