In the heart of 200 uninterrupted hectares the Domaine Calmel & Joseph sits in a remarkable geographical position. At altitudes near to 300 metres, the cultivated plots are surrounded by richly diverse woodland and wild Mediterranean scrub.
Calmel & Joseph are winemakers of our time. They have their own strategy and not entirely without success. Due to the increasing temperature, the winegrowers in the south of France have been forced to look for alternatives to the perfect viticulture. Calmel & Joseph seem to have found these. For example, the gentlemen prefer to grow their grapes on the north-eastern slopes at an altitude of 300-400 meters, so that the mistral can give the most cooling to the grapes, and the sun gets the least grip on the grapes, and not entirely to no avail! The value for money of the Vieille Grange is truly fantastic.
Vieille Grange ‘Les Fines Roches’ Merlot from the south of France is wonderfully soft, round and fruity with a silky aftertaste.
Line it up with pasta dishes with tomato-based sauces, especially with pancetta/bacon or mushrooms, grilled chicken, especially with Mediterranean grilled veg such as peppers, courgettes and aubergines, mac & cheese or BBQ char siu pork
