Located a few kilometers away from the picturesque medieval walled city of Carcassonne, UNESCO World Heritage, the Haute Couture micro négoce Domaine Calmel & Joseph crafts a panel of authentic terroir driven wines from Languedoc Roussillon.
Calmel & Joseph is involved in all the stages of the process from the initial vineyard management to vinification and bottling. The low intervention winemaking is done by Laurent Calmel, while Jérôme Joseph, the business side, travels the world as the Ambassador of the Domaine. The pair also owns a stunning, organically farmed, 200 hectare property in the village of Montirat. Twenty 20 hectares is under vine, the rest being devoted to biodiversity with olive groves, lavender Fields, almonds orchards and beehives.

Located in the eastern part of the Pyrenees mountains, the Roussillon amphitheater is open to the Mediterranean on one side and surrounded by three mountain ranges: the Corbières to the North, the Pyrenees – with Mount Canigou – to the West, and the Albères to the South. The region enjoys the perfect Mediterranean climate with dry, hot summers, and mild autumns and winters. Côtes du Roussillon Villages is a step up in quality from the more generic Côtes du Roussillon appellation.

30% grenache, 30% syrah, 20% mourvedre, 20% carignan. Vinified separately in tanks. Blending. Aged 12 months in tanks. No oak

The powerful and balanced nose offers a bouquet garni of spices, with blackberry, fig, cinnamon, and grilled aromas. In the mouth it is supple with well-integrated, plump tannins and superb aromatic expression taking in laurel, pepper, blackcurrant and yellow plum, typical of this most southerly terroir of our region. The Roussillon is fiercely Mediterranean, seared by the sun, and the wine produced in such a harsh environment is something of a small miracle!
