Variety

50% Carignan

The Petit Canet cuvée comes from a unique ecosystem of clay-limestone and clay-sand soils located between 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.  This wine was especially blended for Paris Wine Company to highlight the old vine Carignan from the region.
