Garnet red with bright reflections. A pleasingly ample nose of grilled, nutty aromas, and spicy notes of white pepper and liquorice. Well-structured and harmonious in the mouth with melting tannins, black fruit such as blueberry, blackcurrant, and blackberry, but also truffle mocha, chocolate, and a superbly fresh finish of green herbs such as dill and wild mint. Caramany is an exceptional terroir, and a real paradise for those seeking to make a truly great red wine. This is a wine that will evolve magnificently over many years to come.

Gneiss and granitic sand from the mountains. Caramany overlooks the Agly dam at an altitude of 242m.
The 2020 vintage experienced a wet spring, which created good balance and contributed to optimum ripeness. The grapes were selected on vatting, and were destemmed but not crushed. Two open top pumping over sessions followed by light moistening of the cap were carried out during fermentation. Gentle vinification in vat over four weeks.
100 % aged for 12 months in barrels two wines old.
