Grenache and Carignan have long been cultivated in Southern France and represent the “forefathers” of the Languedoc Appellation’s red wines. An homage showcasing these varietals, this wine was subsequently labeled “Les Darons”, the affectionate expression for “The Parents” in the Parisian suburbs where winemaker Jeff Carrel was born.

An accessible wine with loads of character, “Les Darons” is packed with ripe, red and dark fruit aromas, with plenty of spice and a streak of underlying mineralogy. Enjoy this classic, unbaked red with a wide range of everyday meals.

Packed with ripe, red and dark fruit aromas. Drinking really nicely now with loads of concentrated fruit. Rich, velvety dark berries with plenty of spice and a streak of underlying minerality coat the palate with balance and depth. Juicy!

*****

Exquisite. The house “favorite,” I’m told. Hence, the chateau theme.
Strawberry Jam and hints of Caramelized Cherry Pie.

Undeniably great.
