Where and How?
This is from organically farmed southern varieties Lledoner Pelut (a variant of Grenache), Grenache, Carignan and Syrah.
The wine underwent carbonic maceration, with fermentation occurring naturally. Aged in cement for twelve months.
This is a love story - but not your typical "boy meets girl in vineyard and falls in love" kinda fairytale. Rather, Carrie Anne Sumner, originally a sommelier from the US, had been working in the Roussillon for a few years, and had crossed paths with Marcel many times. It was only one night where they both let their hair down and unexpectedly got a bit drunk at a local bar that the prospect of a date was put out there.
A decade later, they've had a baby and are producing some of the most exciting naturally made wines of the Roussillon together.
