Boulevard Napoleon Carignan Noir de Coteau, Languedoc, France, 2016 (750ml)
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. Unique as a stand alone variety, this is old vine Carignan expressing depth, finesse and intensity.
