2015 Domaine Léonine Carbone 14 (Magnum - 1.5L)



Stéphane Morin mainly grows Grenache (noir, gris and blanc), some of the vines being 70 years old.
He also grows Macabeu, Syrah and Carignan – some of the Carignan vines are up to 120 years old! The soil types also vary, and this is one of the key factors that can be identified in the wines - the terroir speaks to you. The majority of his wines go through carbonic maceration, which gives them a freshness and vibrancy often not found in wines from this region. 100% Grenache from 70-year old vines from sandy granite soils in Argelès-sur-mer. 21 days carbonic maceration, pressed, then aged in old 500L and 600L barrels for 9 months. Bottled by gravity.
