Jacques Castany and Pascal Dieunidou are two wine fanatics, farming inherited vines part-time in the village of Vingrau (Roussillon). With limited acreage, average yields of just 1.05 tons/acre, and consistently stellar press, the wines are naturally in short supply, though there are plans to slowly increase production to meet demand.
Tasting Notes: Inky purple/black color. Layers of dark fruit (cassis, black cherry) on the nose, with prominent oak, underlying mineral character, and hints of graphite/pencil shavings. A big wine, with firm tannins and a long, persistent finish.
Serve With: Pair with grilled lamb, game, or prime cuts of beef.
