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.

50% mourvèdre, 25% syrah, 25% grenache. Terroir composed of clay limestone with cryoclastic limestone gravel within a deep sandy clay soil. Traditional vinification in concrete vats. The grapes are destemmed but not crushed. Punching down at the beginning of fermentation then light moistening of the cap daily. 100% aged in barrel (20 % new, 40 % barrels one wine old and 40% barrels two wines old) for six months.

Organic. Delicate and powerful nose of blueberry, blackcurrant, and elderberry, evolving to white flowers, eucalyptus, and vanilla, it is also reminiscent of candied fruit cake. The palate opens cleanly and smoothly with fine, persistent tannins. Notes of black fruit, notably blackcurrant, followed by notes more evocative of the Mediterranean, such as black olive, dill, white pepper, peppermint, and liquorice sticks. Good ageing potential.
