Carignan Vieilles Vignes, Chemin de la Serre, Vin de Pays d’Hérault
Carignan - the flagship in many a cellar a la sud de France.
Tastes like: Blackcurrant. Black Plum. Sweet Spice. Garrigue. Vanilla.
Our wine buyer Alex explored the Languedoc on his first ever voyage of wine discovery and was absolutely bewitched by the region's wines, which are ripe and rustic.
He drove back to Britain with a car full of bottles and a lifelong affection for these wines which still represent ludicrous value for money.
Carignan is one of the trademark grapes and this wine comes from old vines, which deliver added complexity and character. A guilt free weekday wine but easily good enough to pair with your Sunday roast.
