‘Red’ offer, Cotes de Roussillon Villages, Calmel & Joseph, 2016,
6 Bottles for the price of 5!
Viader Vintners has worked with Domaine Calmel & Joseph for many years now and we are delighted to bring you this special offer for their Côtes de Roussillon Villages 2016.
Set in the heart of 200 uninterrupted hectares the Domaine sits in a remarkable geographical position. At altitudes near to 300 metres, the cultivated plots are surrounded by richly diverse woodland and wild Mediterranean scrub.
Their ethics are to be admired;
- An innovative Domaine : The site is perfectly adapted to the adoption of respectful agriculture and innovative techniques. Because of its isolation, the Domaine is in a unique position to try innovative methods of cultivation.
- Organic farming methods : Putting life at the heart of the Domaine is our priority, they switched to organic farming for the entire estate. They use no chemicals, whether it be pesticides, herbicides or fungicides, but only natural products in extremely low doses such as Sulphur or tiny amounts of copper, and principally plant extracts and essences. Their work consists of re-establishing life in the soil to encourage mycorrhizae, worms, bacterial activity, fungi and insects.
- They believe firmly in plant biodiversity.
Côtes de Roussillon Villages 2016 tasting notes:
Deep purple & red in colour, almost black. The nose is pronounced with hints of ripe red fruits, almost jammy. Cherry, fig and dried plum dominate. The attack is concentrated but soft. Natural sugar envelops soft tannins. Aromas of candied fruits cover the back of the palate. Nice balance and good length.
