Encore du nouveau chez Carrel !

Still new at Carl!

mardi 05 mars 2024

In the four cuvées that I will tell you about today, only one is arealnovelty. The others change vintage. But it is much more than a replacement of a number on a label: the content is very different from the previous one. You can think that otherwise, I wouldn't have told you about it.

The real novelty, therefore, isequilibrium. It is certainly the most experimental cuvée that Jeff Carll has never done: associating red grape varieties and white grape varieties, we could say that it is ablouge. Except that the latter underwent a maceration of skins during fermentation. So we are on ablourange(Do not look for a dico: it does not exist!). History of "complicating" things, assembly two almost unknown grape varieties: theSoreiliand theG14. The first has already appeared in the Spectacularof the same Carrel, associated with Muscat. It is a hybrid grape from Italy resistant to cryptogamic diseases. G14 is a recent creation of INRA. He is one of theBouquet grape varieties Coming from a succession of crosses, the first of which dates back to 1919.

 



 

It has been tested for ten years: it also resists vine diseases (which allows you to use the tractor much less and be more organic than organic).
