2016 Jeff Carrel "Sous La Montagne" Fitou, Languedoc, France

A perfect blend of Carignan and Syrah, loaded with ripe and dark fruits and notes of blackberry, cassis, and plum. Hints of smoke and spices on the back palate. It's fuller bodied but still incredibly easy drinking.


50% Carignan / 27% Syrah / 23% Grenache

Sous la Montagne (“Below the Mountain”) is a new project from winemaker Jeff Carrel and his associate Sebastien Calduch. This range of estate-bottled and négociant wines is sourced from top sites in the Roussillon and western Languedoc, showcasing the pure, unadorned fruit from old vines planted in brilliant granite and schist-based terroirs.
