PRODUCT REVIEWS

Shipped to the UK exclusively for us, this vibrant carignan from Southern France is the superstar wine that first introduced us to the acclaimed range from Tessellae. Carignan grows well in young vines but its the intensity and character achieved by sourcing fruit from their 70 year-old vines that makes this so terrific.

This exemplary red made by head-winemaker Jean-Marc Lafage has ripe, expressive fruit, freshness and sheer drinkability. An absolute crowd-pleaser full of warmth and Mediterranean character.

This 100% carignan has such intensity and character when made with fruit from old vines, which are over 60 years old. Expressive black fruits - cherries and blackberries - with a bright red fruits character, a wine with freshness, warmth and sheer drinkability.

Reviews of previous vintages:
"The 2017 Côtes Catalanes Tessellae Carignan (100% Carignan) comes from the Agly Valley and was brought up all in tank. Blackberries, leather, dried herbs, and licorice notes all emerge from this spicy, medium-bodied, silky Carignan that has terrific purity and elegance. Its another wine from Jean-Marc that over-delivers. Drink it over the coming couple of years." 
91 points - Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate

"A sensational value the readers should snatch up [...] This full-bodied, ripe, sexy red has incredible purity of fruit, no hard edges and classic notes of blackberries, plums, spice and pepper. Its a screaming deal."
The Wine Advocate - 92 points [2015 vintage]
