Wine Description

Situated in Sainte-Cécile-Les-Vignes, Domaine Rouge-Bleu follows farming inspired by biodynamic principles on all of its 21 acres, half of which rest in the Côtes-du-Rhône Villages Sainte Cécile appellation.

Low yields are the natural outcome of old, deep-rooted vines that sit on a stony soil of ancient riverbed. Coupled with the Mediterranean climate of long, hot, dry summers and the Mistral wind, this vineyard is the perfect environment for berry maturation, giving a pure expression of terroir.

Carignan is a lighter version of Merlot, and is an ancient southern Rhône variety which accounts for less than 5% of the vineyards in the region. It's famous for its elegant freshness and a warmly spiced palate of blackcurrant, forest fruits, cinnamon and pink pepper. It is produced from the vineyard's 1965 and 1978 plots of old vines and only 2,500 bottles are produced.
