Domaine La Manarine Le Carignan Vin de France 2018


Product description
Alcohol %:13.5%

Tasting Notes
This 'Vin de France' is made from 100% Carignan, a grape that disappears into the blend in the Rhone region more often than getting its own podium.
Le Carignan is sourced from a three-hectare parcel, “Le Alcyon”, located just outside of Travaillan. Gasq first produced a wine from these vines in 2014.  After harvesting the grapes around the middle of September, they are destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for roughly 20 days before being aged on the fine lees for the better part of a year. 
Winemaker Gilles Gasq prefers to pick Carignan on the early side of its maturity to preserve its vibrant natural acidity and avoid making a wine that is overly alcoholic. Generally, this cuvee showcases a vibrant red fruit intensity, underscored by hints of wild herbs and earth.

About the Wine Maker
Domaine la Manarine was created by Gilles Gasq in April 2001. The winery and majority of his vineyards are located within the commune of Travaillan, on a splendid plateau northeast of Orange in the southern Rhone. Gilles is a talented vigneron who has honed his skills working as an assistant to Paul Jeune, the proprietor of Domaine Monpertuis in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. In 2015, Gasq has purchased two parcels of Grenache in Chateauneuf-du-Pape totaling 1.5 hectrare and since then things started to really take off for him.
Gasq practices organic viticulture. Work in the cellar is minimal with little intervention. Fermentations are left to start with indigenous yeasts, with no fining and only a light filtration is utilized if needed. Considering the personal attention and great care invested in his wines, his wines offer some of the best value in our entire portfolio.
