Description

L’Echappee Belle, also inwon as the Great Escape, represents a celebratory revival of the Carignan. Chateau de Caraguilhes takes this classic to new heights thanks to our careful selection of organic terrain, excellent sun exposure and rigorous process of pruning the grapes. The result is a remarkable fresh wine that has great length and heightens the senses with its incredible crisp and vivid fruitiness. Break away from the beaten path and rediscover the new full-bodied Carignan.

Eye:
Deep, dense, crimson garnet. Intense concentration.

Nose:
Intense delicate aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry and sherry. Upon breathing, it opens up with scents of moka and liquorice bringing further complexity.

Palate:
The immediate impression is richness together with a cohesive balance between the fruit, the softness of the tannins and the wine’s effortless concentration. A powerful, intense, sun soaked wine with remarkable freshness and considerable length – it is a true expression of our terroir as in the previous vintages. Already supple, it is a wine that can be drunk now yet has the character and structure for ample ageing.

Food Pairing:

Quail with truffles, coq au vin, confit of duck, refined cheeses, grilled meat, smoked duck, wagyu beef. This velvet wine can also be enjoyed by itself.
