The Wine
" 20% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 243% Carignan More Syrah than usual due to new plantings which gives a soft texture and sweeter finish than recent vintages. Less Cabernet than usual and more than usual Carignan. Black and red raspberries, followed by the tell tale Provencal smell of garrigue. Warm, round tones of sandalwood, chocolate and caramel coat the tongue with hints of nutmeg and black pepper. Ripe, round tannins provide beautiful definition without being too bold." ~ Winery notes

35% Syrah, 23% Carignan, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Grenache
Hand-harvested grapes
Indigenous yeasts
Aged in a combination of tank and large older barrels


The Estate
The wine has been certified organic since 1948! This storied domaine, run with passion and skill by Luc and Lucienne Cartier, has been farming and making wine organically for decades. Their gorgeous property in the beautiful countryside appellation of Les Baux de Provence yields powerful expressions of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, and more – not to mention olives (their oil is one of France’s finest), and incredible fruit and vegetables. Luc and Lucienne’s wines combine the richness and intensity of top Rhone or Bordeaux with a crystal-clear and unmistakable expression of Provençal soil. They set themselves apart even further from the pack with the eye-grabbing rustic, squat bottle used for their unbelievably great-value red.
