Variety: Grenache and Cinsault
If you take some doctors, whose family has some old land holdings, and let them be farmers you end up with some pretty amazing juice. They care about all the health benefits of wine and they cut out all the things that are bad for you. They just make wine from grapes, pretty simple. They may be called “natural” but these are truly wines we crave and love. Jean is the village doctor and he and his wife have family ties in the wine world dating back to the 16th century. The family farms with organic, intuitive practices to preserve the life of the soils and the entire property works as an eco-system. There are some incredibly old vines on site, over 115 years old, and it is pretty special to have access to this age of rootstock.
The name of this bottle means “Crossroads.” The Lignère family openly admits their love for the often overlooked and neglected Carignan. They purposefully made this blend of Grenache and Cinsault to share their love for the other varieties that thrive in the Corbieres appellation. The vines come from the slopes of the Alaric mountain.
