Gravillas 2021 Vin de France Lo Vielh Carignan

Out of stock

 The Clos des Gravillas "Lo Vielh" is from Carignan planted in 1911 that was the first vineyard purchased by Nicole and John, who saved it from being torn out. "The vines demand a lot of work and attention, but they pay it back. The soil is exceptional, lumpy as desired due to a very lively humus and a perfect stony limestone on the Terroir of Cazelles. These vines give a wine that speaks with great depth and finesse, with notes of thyme and bay leaf." The aromas are really fascinating - blackberry, blueberry, fig and violet. It's dark and almost inky in color but medium/light in body, velvety and deeply flavored, and has great freshness, with ample acidity and a lingering mineral finish. This would pair well with most red meats but is particularly suited to anything gamey - the winemaker recommends coq au vin with guinea hen! It's a piece of Languedoc history that is unique and delicious - bravo to John and Nicole for saving the old vines. -David Lillie
