BKWine Tip: Clos Centeilles, Languedoc

>> Thursday, March 15, 2007

Clos Centeilles

bb21-345-4562Daniel and Patricia Domergue consider Cinsault to be the best grape in the whole of Languedoc! And also the most typical. Grenache and Carignan are both newcomers, introduced after the phylloxera crisis, they say. They bought the run down Clos Centeilles in 1990 with 10 hectares of Cinsault, Carignan and Grenache. Already the very first vintage they were impressed by the quality they had from Carignan. Now they make tow Cinsault cuvées, Campagne de C and Capitelle de Centeilles, as well as one more “traditional” blend on Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache, the Clos Centeilles. Le Carignissime is an original cuvée from 100% Carignan.
