"Bright, and pretty on the nose. Spicy! Peppery! Explodes and crackles with spices. Then a swathe of sweet, beautifully shaped red fruit across the palate. Softness and spice. A kind of Moroccan wine in its blend of sweet spices and sweet fruit and yet savour. Cheeky yet charming. So sappy on the finish. A wine you really want to drink."
Founded in 1995, Calmel & Joseph is a maison de négoce specializing in Languedoc-Roussillon wines from across the region. Over the years, they have built close personal relationships with a large number of growers from all appellations. Convinced of the extraordinary potential of this region, oenologist, Laurent Calmel, and Jerome Joseph work together on the vinification, blending and ageing of wines with the common purpose of demonstrating the little known yet unique quality of these Mediterranean terroirs.
Offering superb value for money, Calmel & Joseph seek out (relatively) cooler climate vineyards from which to make their wines, as this enables them to produce wine of elegance and finesse.
