Domaine of the Bee Carignan

Carignan

Cotes Catalanes

14.5 Alcohol

Introduction

The Domaine of the Bee’s ‘La Rocque’ vineyard, located in Roussillon, in southern France, is only one hectare in size, and the vines are over 80 years old. Most of the Carignan from this vineyard is used in blends, but sometimes when the yields are particularly good, such as in this vintage, the winemakers bottle it as a single varietal to showcase what this grape can do when the vines are very old. The winery was started by three friends who had other ‘day jobs’ when they decided to purchase property in Roussillon. After spending time in Corbieres and falling in love with the countryside, they knew they had to relocate to this beautiful spot. Making their wines in the hottest, driest part of France, the grapes ripen easily and they produce wines that are deeply coloured, and full-bodied. They began by working evenings, weekends, and holidays to bring their dream to fruition. And the rest, they say, is history! Enjoy this wine at 18 C, from now or cellar it until 2028.


How it looks

How it smells

This wine’s aromas just burst from the glass with big, black, bramble fruit, black cherry, dark plum, prune, and licorice, with a slatey minerality, and some softening, supportive oak scents.

How it tastes

This is a concentrated and delicious wine with loads of power and length. A luscious and big wine with very approachable fruit and soft, silky tannins. There are ripe fruit layers of black and red cherry fruit, dark plum, prune, and licorice, that combine with hints of dried herbs and vanilla. This well-balanced wine is one you’ll want to share!

Recommended food pairing

Carignan is especially good with cured meats, medium-aged cheese, and wild boar sausage, but it also pairs well with grilled lamb, and most barbecued meats.
