"Steep hills, 400m above sea level.  Carignan undergoes carbonic maceration.  Slightly muddy crimson.  Sweet generous plum-plump nose.  Lots of fruit to begin with, a real mouthful of berries with birght lemony acidity.  However the fruit is not as ripe or as sweet as the nose would suggest.  More sharp-edged, with a touch of cedary spice.  Young and vigorous tannins kicking the fruit back into submission, and I think they need a year or two to mellow out a little.  Juniper berry on the finish, giving the wine an attractive medicinal edge.  Very restrained and elegant, in typical Calmel & Joseph mode.  These guys take Saville Row into the vineyard."

Chateau Grand Village Rouge, Bordeaux Superieur

The red is usually a blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. There is only a very small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon planted here as the soil, as in Pomerol, is rich in clay. The blend is usually 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot and aged in barriques for 12 to 1 months, with only a small proportion of new wood, never more than 20%. The result is a supple and harmonious claret with deceptive levels of concentration and definition and it generally drinks well from three to ten years after harvest. Colour: Red
