Domaine Faillenc Sainte Marie Noe Carignan
Jean-Baptiste Gibert produces this unique cuvée from a parcel of Carignan that is well over a hundred years old. He includes a splash of Grenache—no more than 5%–in order to be within the regulations of the Corbières appellation (which forbid single-variety wines), but “Noé” is wholly driven by this powerful, wild, dense, and characterful old Carignan, a variety which thrives in the craggy, dusty terroir of Douzens. Gibert vinifies and ages the wine simply, in fiberglass tank without temperature stabilization or added yeasts.
