Variety

Carignan Blanc

The amphora wines were inspired by a trip to Georgia by the founder of the domaine in 2004, and they have been producing wines aged in amphora since 2005. Carignan Blanc is a nearly extinct variety, and this cuvée comes from a pre phylloxera 1 hectare parcel planted by the founder's great grandfather in the 1920s!
