Variety

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 celler, 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 to add a blue background as a reference to "du bleu", the local nickname for Carignan (because of the blue color the grape historically picked up in the vines due to the massive Bordeaux mixture treatment to protect the fragile variety). Serge Scherrer produces two wines completely with bare 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) .
