Classic Roussillon varieties grow on crooked slopes. Rafalot is one hectare designation of 100+ year Carignan. The cuvée Rafalot comes from century-old dry-farmed Carignan in rugged clay and limestone soils, tended with the utmost care and respect for the environment. Olivier Varichon and his wife, Emmanuelle Vinci, stomp the grapes by foot and let them ferment naturally before ageing the wine in neutral barrels before an unfined, unfiltered bottling with no added sulfur. Imposingly structured with deep, powerful black fruit, licorice, and spicy herbal tones, We feel the South and we sense the Carignan without the fatigue that it can sometimes bring. It's a serious wine, a big wine with a youthful elegance that's surprising.
