100% made out of 65- and 119-year-old vines of Carignan vines planted on the gneiss terroir of the north-facing hillsides of Cassagnes at an altitude of 350-400m and surrounded by garrigue. A fresh and intense wine, without artifice. Lively, it will gain in complexity with some aeration. The palate is changing, sometimes mineral, sometimes on the fruit. Aged in stainless steel tank and amphorae in order to preserve the delicately natural but clean fragrances of salmiak and blueberries, and the iron and iodine flavors. Franc Tireur is the flagship wine of Vignoble Réveille!

Winemaker Notes

France Crispeels

Vignoble Réveille

by France Crispeels
Fruit-forward, elegant and balanced wine with a tangy twist. Red fruits aromas with hint of pepper are layered with the freshness and the salinity brought by the terroir. The mouthfeel is lightly structure and the tannins are fine-grained and subtle. Ready to drink when uncorked, it will gain aromatic expression and length after resting for some time. I personally like this Carignan with raw vegetables, Mediterranean fish slightly cooked, and juicy grilled meat.
