Dom Brial ‘Les Camines’ Rouge 2021

16.50

Description

‘Les Camines’ comes from el cami, “the path” in Catalan, still spoken here in the deep south of France close to the Pyrenees and Spanish border. Located between the Mediterranean sea and the Pyrenean mountains, Dom Brial’s vineyards are Mediterranean in climate, protected by the cool mountain ranges on one side and the fresh ocean breezes on the other.

Les Camines Rouge is a blend of Merlot, Grenache and Syrah, fermented and matured in stainless steel. The three grapes work beautifully together here, the Merlot providing soft tannins and red fruit, the Syrah black fruit and acidity, and the Grenache some savouriness and spice. Supple and fruity, it offers aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant and a hint of earthy garrigue, with a summer fruit bowl on the palate, raspberries and damsons providing sweetness and depth, with a dry, elegant finish.

Producer: Dom Brial

Set in one of the most beautiful regions of France, Dom Brial was established in 1923 in the town of Baixas, between the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees near Perpignan. The vineyards are Mediterranean in climate, protected by the cool mountain ranges on one side and the fresh ocean breezes on the other. Between the sea, the mountains and the vineyards, there is beauty all around here.

The winery was established by a handful of winegrowers coming together in the face of a major viticultural crisis at the time, expanding quickly through their solidarity and financial stability. Today the cooperative represents almost 250 growers cultivating over 2,000 hectares of vineyards in the Côtes du Roussillon.

The patchwork of terroirs, and scope for planting varietals most suited to the local microclimate, allows for the production of a range of wine styles, from high quality table wines, to super cuvées, to the natural sweet wines of Rivesaltes.
