Les Eminades 'Vielles Canailles' Carignan, Saint Chinian, Langeudoc, France
Vielles Canailles means Old Rascal. Made from low yielding 112 old Carignan vines, this is one of the best wines we've tried from this area. Rich, intense and concentrated, this wine has had 14 months in large old oak which gives a touch of vanilla, along with notes of black cherry, smoke and herbs.
Only wild yeasts are used and the wines are bottled unfined and with minimal doses of sulphur.
These are stunning wines, well thought of as some of the best in Saint Chinian. We're proud to be the UK importers to Les Eminades.
