‘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.
