Calmel + Joseph, Côtes du Roussillon–Villages Caramany 'La Folie Douce' 2021
94 POINTS: Wine Direct Tasting Team
"A classic blend of Syrah 35%, Carignan 35% , Grenache 30%. Garnet red with bright reflections. A pleasingly ample nose of grilled, nutty aromas, and spicy notes of white pepper and liquorice. Well-structured and harmonious in the mouth with melting tannins, black fruit such as blueberry, blackcurrant, and blackberry, but also truffle mocha, chocolate, and a superbly fresh finish of green herbs such as dill and wild mint. Caramany is an exceptional terroir, and a real paradise for those seeking to make a truly great red wine. This is a wine that will evolve magnificently over many years to come."
