Carignan 2012


Juicy - Brambles - Blue Fruit - Garrigue

This wine is an exemplary example of what an under-rated variety Carignan is when planted in the correct spot and handled with care. It is deep ruby in colour, with ripe fruit and spicy notes on the nose. The palate is lifted with bright berries and is supple in texture.

Boulevard Napoleon
Producer Profile Boulevard Napoleon
Boulevard Napoleon is our little wine company based in the Minervois. We work parcellaire with vignerons, with our good friend Benjamin Darnault giving direction on the viticulture and the harvest, we then vinify at our winery in La Liviniere. Our interest is to make wines that are of themselves and not to some flavour or customer profile. We want them to represent each vintage and to demonstrate that the future is not just in price point supermarket wines but that there is both a place and a future for craft winemaking.
