An intriguing new wine from our old friends Calmel & Joseph, just arrived in the UK.
Clairette du Languedoc is the region’s tiniest (just 90 hectares) and oldest AOC.
Fun fact, ‘Ams tram gram’ is the French equivalent of ‘eni meni mini mo.’
Even more fun, this wine should be around the £12 mark but we decided to give you ‘un quartier libre.’
Here’s how C&J describe the taste –
“Extraordinary brilliance in this spun gold wine. The nose is markedly mineral, a little flinty with aromas of grapefruit, white blossom and a hint of musk. Fennel, aniseed and a delightful touch of sweet almond reveal its Mediterranean origins. In the mouth it is powerful, round, with gentle tannins, and notes of citrus, pineapple, mango and lemon that are underlined by spices. This wine’s immense complexity means that we can enjoy its splendidly typical qualities whilst young, but is also a promise of a great future.”
