Vin de France


100% Carignan

L'Insoumis (The Rebel) is made with 100% Carignan, which is the region's most capricious grape to grow and vinify. Serge says that it always gets sick in the vineyard, and whenever there are problems in the cellar, nine times out of ten it's the Carignan. The label art was drawn by Yann Dumur, Serge's friend and local tattoo artist. Serge suggested adding a blue background as a reference to "du bleu," the local nickname for Carignan (this is because of the blue hue the grape). Serge Scherrer produces two wines with minimal added sulfur from some of his oldest vines. These cuvées are Serge's way of making wines that are clearly against the establishment of what is expected from the region. Both wines have revolutionary-leaning names: L'Affranchi (the Unbound) and L'Insoumis (the Rebel) .
