The unknown Carignan Blanc
The carignan blanc is a mutation of the carignan noir born after the phylloxera crisis when some winemaker wanted to reproduce the carignan noir. The carignan blanc’s berry is round small and has a thick skin. The wines produced are complex with vanilla, yellow fruits, white flowers, apple and exotic fruits aromas. Those wines can age between 5 to 15 years!
