Fond Cyprès Le Carignan de La Source 2020

Unit price per

Sixty-year-old Carignan vines grow on an idyllic parcel abutting their home, at the foot of a fresh water stream flowing from the forest above. Supremely happy, pretty grapes from vines that have earned elegance with age. Harvested by hand and then kept four weeks in concrete followed by one year in barrels. Nothing added, nothing removed. Rustic, wild, and free.
