About the wine
Due to the wine being highly allocated, it is limited to one per customer.
This is a profound, deep, and complex red that is potentially the most aromatic you can find in all of Southern France. Alain Castex, a quiet but immensely dedicated farmer and magic maker in the Roussillon, is one of our greatest heroes. His wines are passion incarnate. It is hard to not speak of these wines without a tear, because the vibrancy, soul, and heart here...well it’s a form of spirituality unto itself.
Vinification: A blend of Syrah and Merlot hand-harvested from 30-40 year-old vines grown in granitic soils with gravel and schist deposits. The grapes undergo whole-cluster maceration and spontaneous fermentation is kickstarted with only the help of native yeasts in stainless steel tank. The wine undergoes a short aging and is bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with no additional SO2.
