Grenache and Carignan have long been cultivated in Southern France and represent the “forefathers” of the Languedoc Appellation’s red wines. Les Darons is 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 5% Carignan. This wine was subsequently labeled “Les Darons”, an affectionate expression for “The Parents” in the Parisian suburbs where winemaker Jeff Carrel was born. Les Darons is made with grapes sourced from estate vineyards at Chateau Arcades in Languedoc-Roussillon.
Tasting Notes: Les Darons is an accessible wine with loads of character. This wine is packed with ripe, red and dark fruit aromas. Smooth and robust with plenty of spice and a streak of underlying minerality.
Serve With: Enjoy this classic, unoaked red with a wide range of everyday meals.
