Tessellae-Carignan-"Vieilles Vignes" Cotes Catalanes-2011

"Vieilles Vignes" Cotes Catalanes


Old vine CARIGNAN from French Catalonia, near Spain. Dark, briar-y, spicy berries, plum sauce, black pepper, licorice smells and flavors. Heady wine, full of sweet fruit and firm tannins on the finish. On the simple side, as that’s the nature of Carignane. Perfect for BBQ and stews.

“Ripe scents, palate-staining intensity + persistence of blackberry and mulberry on a polished palate…crunch of berry seeds and a nutty ping akin to lentil sprouts administering welcome invigoration and counterpoint. Combines fullness & sweet ripeness with vivacity, buoyancy and downright refreshment.”  David Schildknecht for The Wine Advocate
