Carignan

This red grape variety, that originated in Aragon, Spain, was introduced in France in the 12th century. Despite massive pulling out of vines in recent years, over 100,000 hectares of vines continue to be cultivated in France, primarily in three southern regions: Languedoc-Roussillon, Provence and, to a lesser degree, Corsica.

  • Tasting With its gorgeous dark colour slightly tinged with purple, Les Jamelles Carignan features notes of prune, blackcurrant, wild strawberry and black cherry, along with spicy notes (white pepper). It starts off soft and flavourful on the palate, with notes reminiscent of the aromas perceived on the nose. Elegant tannins and full body result from grapes picked at optimal maturity with restricted yields.
  • Food & Wine Served at 18°C, this Carignan showcases dishes prepared with lamb, game (wild boar stew), duck breast with cranberry sauce, and full-flavoured dishes (steak with pepper sauce, tournedos with porcini mushrooms). Catherine Delaunay suggests a red kuri squash and chestnut soup, rabbit with blackcurrant mustard, and cassoulet. Or for sheer decadence, try our choco-hazelnut dessert!
