Alain Grignon Carignan Vieilles Vignes 2015 PGI Pays de l'Hérault


    As a manager for a long time in Majestic this has always been one of my go to wines when looking for that 'every day type of wine'. A beautifully easy going mouthfeel with enough texture to stand up to red meat.

  • Origin

    An indigenous grape variety of the Languedoc, Carignan produces dark ruby red wines with plenty of body, and are said to be a great expression of the rugged heathland terroir around Carcassonne. This example is from low-yielding vines aged around 40 years.

  • Taste

    Deep and inky red in colour, the wine is crammed with black cherry fruit, lifted by subtle vanilla aromas from a touch of oak ageing. Bold, meaty tannins provide satisfying texture and length.

  • Enjoy

    Drink with traditional and hearty southern French cuisine like cassoulet and duck confit.

Special Distribution

Special distribution

We offer our whole range of fine wines online, including wines stored at our temperature controlled Fine Wine Centre in London. Wines labelled 'Special Distribution' are sent by courier from the Fine Wine Centre to your local Majestic before your delivery can be completed. This allows you to choose from a much greater range, but does mean delivery may take a few days longer than usual.
