Domaine du Météore Carignides


Country: France

Region: Faugères

Grapes: Carignan

Vintage: 2020

Domaine du Météore is a unique Faugères estate located atop a 200 metre wide crater that was created when a meteorite crashed into the area 10,000 years ago. The low-yielding vines grow in rocky schist soils that force the roots to delve deep in search of nutrients and imbue the wines with pronounced minerality. Winemaking is low intervention with the domaine certified organic and working towards biodynamic certification. 

The Carignides is 100% old vine Carignan fermented long and slow for 5 weeks then aged in stainless steel for 14 months. Rich, concentrated aromas of blueberry, morello cherry and cocoa. Luxurious, fruity and full on the palate with a gentle mineral finish and silky tannic texture.
