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.

Organic. The Marselan varietal is a cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache Noir. It was created in 1961 near the town of Marseillan by the INRA research body and is now planted in vineyards in the Languedoc, Rhône Valley, Spain, the North Coast of California, Switzerland and Israel. Estate grown. Vinified in stainless steel tanks. Aged 12 months in concrete tanks.

Organic. The colour, dense as always, that veers towards an inky, blackish violet, is an indicator of the generosity of this wine. Black fruit, quince and spices subtly intertwine to finish on superb jammy aromas. Mouth-filling and smooth, its notes of blackcurrant, blackberry, licorice and spices are accompanied by powerful tannins that retain a magnificent and surprising freshness. Perfect for drinking throughout the seasons.
