Tasting

- Well lets tear off this old Carignan? It is no longer useful!

-You can also remove the sea from the Gulf of Lion if you want!

-It is too old, it only produce 25 hl / ha, we need more juice!

-Keep calm bro’, come and drink a round ... we'll talk about it later.

And from this discussion was born "PEPITE 100% Carignan", from the blood of our oldest vine, an old Carignan rooted since 1924 on our clay-limestone soils. Harvested manually and vinified in whole bunches, this wine speaks, makes us travel and reflects perfectly our Mediterranean scrubland. An aging in French oak barrels gives it roundness and complexity.
