Les Darons by Jeff Carrel Rouge Magnum

« Les Darons » (meaning fathers) is a wine which is representative of western Languedoc: the most southern wine region in France, based mainly on Grenache planted on clay and limestone soils.

Grape varieties

75% Grenache / 5% Carignan / 20% Syrah

Origin

France / Languedoc

Nuance, aroma & taste

Deep red with glints of purple.

Hints of red fruit yoghurts, and with aeration fruits such as plums, blueberries and blackberries combined with cinnamon and white pepper spices.

Combines amplitude and stress with a dense and silky matter. Mature tannins which easily pass thanks to the fruit and its freshness.
Powerful, full-bodied and luscious with numerous but not over-bearing spices finishing with menthol resinous notes.

Pairing

Barbecues, red and white meats, a red wine for all occasions… and a magnum especially for the week-ends…
