Petit Canet

Christophe Troutinski and Laurent Graell

Paris Wine Company founder Joshua Adler uses his intimate knowledge of French wine regions and connections with producers to create custom bottlings for The Good Wine Project. The project mission is to find good wines at great prices with fun labels.

Petit Canet is a collaboration with Laurent Graell, a partner at Domaine de la Dourbie located in the village of Canet. The grapes come from Dourbie’s own certified organic vineyards and are blended to highlight the traditional Carignan-based blends of the region.

All of the wines are vinified with native yeasts and are aged in tank to ensure fresh, fruity, and easy-to-enjoy bottles with
nice labels. Laurent Graell vinifies the wines alongside veteran Languedoc winemaker Christophe Troutinski, who joined La Dourbie in 2008 after working for many years as the cellar master at the well known Domaine d’Auphilhac.

The Petit Canet cuvée comes from a unique ecosystem of clay-limestone and clay-sand soils located between the La Dourbie and L’Herault rivers. They have been farming organically since 2003, and their only direct neighbor is a beekeeper who lets his bees out to help pollinate all the vines. The majority of the vines were planted in the 1960s and 1970s, though some of the Carignan dates back even longer.
