Founded in 1995, Calmel & Joseph is a maison de négoce specializing in Languedoc-Roussillon wines from private wineries from across the region. Over the years, they have built close personal relationships with a large number of growers from all appellations. CoVintage_NVinced of the extraordinary potential of this region, oenologist, Laurent Calmel, and Jerome Joseph work together on the vinificationBlending and ageing of wines with the common purpose of demonstrating the little known yet unique quality of these Mediterranean terroirs. As well as their desire to produce high quality wines consistent with their terroirs, they are committed to making wines which reflect their coVintage_NVictions and experience.

Vineyards
Clay limestone with cryoclastic limestone gravel within a deep sandy clay soil.

Vinification
Traditional process in vats. Punching down early in the fermentation process, then daily, light mouillage (soaking) of the cap is carried out towards the end of the 15-day period in vat. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels. 12 months in oak barrels (40 % new wood, 40 % barrels used for one vintage, 20% barrels used for two vintages)

Tasting Notes
A lovely ruby red hue. Highly opulent nose with notes of red and black berry fruit such as redcurrant, blackcurrant and elderberry. The attack is elegant, frank, with a strongly red fruit middle palate and complex notes of aniseed, peppermint and eucalyptus for a wine with lots of character. The oaky notes of this vintage are finely honed and the tannins are already well integrated. An atypical Terrasses du Larzac in the continuity of the style of previous vintages.
