About the Family

Built on a sandy mound the, Font de Joubert lieu-dit and vineyards invite you to take things easy, as you stroll from one little square to the next via winding lanes and curious water springs. Its gently sloping, drawn-out vineyards are planted in sandy soils, decalcified red clays and gravelly pebbles of various sizes. This is where Caroline Charrier and her brother produce this comforting red wine.

The winemaking

Interestingly almost entire Grenache based, with 3% Mourvedre

Traditional vinification in concrete tanks, using low temperature fermentation (under 20°C / 68°F). Long after fermentation maceration in tanks for 2 to 4 weeks. 15%

 

Ross Recommends

I love a good CndP, and this one is no exception. Weightier than most with some serious finish brought on by the alcohol, expect intense strawberry jam and serious body. We’re always drawn to family ran producers, and this one is a father-daughter-son team.
