Saint Chinan, France – Syrah/Grenache/Carignan – Alcohol 14% – Biodynamic
A true artisan winemaker, Marc Vallete left the Saint-Chinian cooperative in 1992 and immediately replanted his entire vineyards in order to follow an organic farming practice. If historically the wines were unapproachable in their youth, both Marc and his wines have softened a bit in recent years. But one thing that has not changed is Marc’s dedication to the wild, rugged and raw Languedoc terroir, and this continues to be reflected, vintage after vintage, in these stunningly complex and powerful wines.
Very classically Saint-Chinian, Une et Mille Nuits is a blend of primarily syrah
and grenache, accented with carignan, mourvèdre and cinsault. 18 months ageing in concrete
and used barrels.
