The Oddbins Take

Life begins at 40, we're told… Presumably by the over 40s, as everyone else is far too busy gestating to come up with clever maxims. Yet it is true that it is at this age people tend to become more comfortable in their own skin and expressive of their true nature.

This idiom also holds true for Carignan vines. In their youth, the wines they produce are unsure of themselves, often lacking depth and direction. Yet once the vines pass 40 years, Carignan wines come to life. The vines used for this Carignan dominant blend are in fact over 60 years old! Deep, well-defined and breath-takingly concentrated Sous la Montagne Fitou is demonstrative of the quality old Carignan vines can deliver. The palate is full-bodied, yet with a velvety texture and a powerful flavour profile of dark berries, black cherry, mocha and a hint of leather. Goodness, perhaps life actually begins at 60!
