Tasting Notes

Sophie Guiraudon is a one woman show, farming 25 acres of vines while running her humble facility in Corbieres. Sophie calls this her "Sunday" wine or "Occasion" wine (Dimanches means Sunday in French) as it is her best parcel selection and oldest vine fruit. The vines for the "Dimanches" are planted on gravelly clay-limestone soils. The cepage is 60% Carignan (80 year old vines), 30% Syrah and 10% Grenache. The deepest and richest of Sophie's wines, this is bold Corbieres with loads of black fruit and minerality. Approachable now but perfect for a few years in the cellar and best savored with friends and loved ones on a timeless day.

    Sophie remains a strong advocate for her native Carignan grape, believing that if properly cultivated and kept to low yields it can make extraordinary wines. And the evidence is there, for year after year her Carignan-based wines engage with their superb fruit, delineation and charm. The 2015 Clos de l’Anhel Les Dimanches, her “Sunday wine,” is fashioned from a precious parcel of 80-year-old Carignan vines blended with Syrah and Grenache. Almost opaque in color, with devastating black fruit aromas and enchanting overtones of ripe cherry, plum, cocoa and spice, balanced by a solid core of velvety tannins, this is a lavish wine that will merit a few more years in the cellar.

    I brought this home on a whim recently and loved it. From one of the finest female wine makers in Corbières, Sophie Guiraudon, this Carignan, Syrah, Grenache blend is aromatic, plush and incredibly delicious. The three varietals intermingle to create wonderful complexity. Rich, ripe blackberry, wild blueberry and cassis blend with anisette and violets. Incredibly food friendly thanks to the Carignan heavy assemblage, this would fit right in with everything from beef to poultry to heartier vegetable dishes like lentil stew or eggplant parmigiana.
