Calmel et Joseph ‘Les Crus’ Caramany

Languedoc Roussillon, France

Laurent Calmel and Jerome Joseph are two of the nicest guys you will ever meet on the French wine scene, and are doing some pretty amazing things on their beautiful organically-farmed property just a few kms from the ancient city of Carcassonne. Visiting this estate is like something straight of an episode of Rick Stein, with the Canal du Midi passing just minutes from the property – there is little more enjoyable than sitting in one of the beautiful canal-side restaurants over a very long lunch watching holidaymakers in their rented boats negotiating the locks! Rent out the farmhouse or one of the other small, beautifully appointed gites for a real taste of French rural life. But in the meantime, their wines are a wonderful catalogue of the very best the Languedoc-Roussillon region has to offer.

This wine hails from the Calmel et Joseph estate itself, located within the district known as Côtes du Roussillon Villages. Entirely organic, this is a silky, full-bodied wine with mouth-filling tannins and and smooth oak playing a supporting role to the opulent dark fruits, spice and notes of garrigue and mint. A serious wine to be decanted and savoured with something delicious to eat. Blend 40% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 30% Carignan.
