Deep ruby-red robe. Intense nose with black fruit notes (blackberry, blackcurrant), and a hint of menthol. On the palate it is supple and mouth-filling; the black fruit comes through again, with Syrah adding structure and spice; the tannins are nicely integrated and the finish is long. A poised, elegant example of Minervois wine grown on hillsides.
In 2007, Laurent Calmel joined J Joseph’s fifteen years old trading company that specialized in Languedoc Roussillon wines coming from Private cellars. Both of them decided to take up a new challenge: vinifying in the most natural way a range of great Languedoc Roussillon wines on hardly known appellations from a strict selection of parcels cultivated organically. This desire to prove the exceptional quality of these soils also relied on complete transparency of the wines. Their cultural methods and vinification are widely described on their blog www.calmel-joseph.com.
