K&L Notes

Parisian Jeff Carrel was looking to make wines and found his way to the south of France where he has achieved some great status as a roving winemaker. Often partnering with importer Dan Kravitz of Hand Picked Selections (the importer of this wine), Jeff put together the delicious "Les Darons." It is a dual homage meaning "parents" in his native neighborhood in Paris and also referencing Grenache and Carignan, the parent grape varieties to all red wines in Languedoc-Roussillon. The fruit comes from Laure-Minervois and from vines that are 40+ years old. This year's blend is a 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Carignan. The grapes are destemmed before fermentation, the wine sees no oak and is bottled ready for your immediate consumption. Pure deliciousness. (Keith Mabry, K&L French Regional buyer)

    The Jeff Carrel is always a delight. It is a juicy fruit forward style that leads off with cherry and raspberry notes and finishes with peppery spices. There is a silky texture throughout. This is a lot of wine for not a lot of money. My new Taco Tuesday red!
