I was knocked back by this sexy warm fullsome red wine from Loic Reulet, the son of Jean Marc and Fabienne Reulet. Its not plain and simple Carignan - it exudes the complex terrolr of Boutenac, the sun drenched soils, the summer heaviness, the bouquet, all.
I was lucky enough to be introduced to this yet unavailable or commercially bottled wine by Jean Marc Reulet at Vinisud 2014, and will rush off to buy a box or two when it is bottled. It is not named at present - but I think Loic sums up the character of this single cepage wine.
Probably about 7 euros a bottle.
