Nicolas Carmarans

2020 Entre Les Eaux

Regular price

This is a new wine for Carmarans made from his relatively new vineyard beside his house near the village of Campouriez.
You reach his winery on a twisting road through the forests below the village in the direction of Montézic until you suddenly emerge to sweeping views across his new vineyards and the waters of the Truyère river. This wine is a very uncommon blend to say the least! It comprises 50% Chenin Blanc from his own vineyards and 50% Aligoté that he has purchased from a vigneron in the Macôn – hence the Vin de France rather than IGP Aveyron on the label. Both grape varieties were direct pressed separately and underwent débourbage (settling) for one night before the juice was transferred to old wooden barrels for fermentation and maturation. The result is a clean, fresh white wine with lots of personality derived from the combination of these two exciting grape varieties. Living Wines
