Made by our friend Laurent Calmel.
Laurent takes grapes from various small plots. 20% is picked early and is fresh and green, the remaining 80% is riper. 10% of the resulting wine is aged in oak barrels for 3 months.
It is the skill and dedication to such painstaking production that make Calmel & Joseph’s wines so appealing and why the wine so many awards as well as friends.
This is a wine with broody dark fruit which at the same time is not overpowering. Peppery spice on the finish gives it complexity too. All in all a great wine for a very affordable price!
