Turner Pageot Carmina Major Rouge 2016

This is the estate's flagship red. The grapes are given an extended 3-month maceration on the skins, and the resulting wine is aged for 24 months in 500 litre oak demi-muids (30% of which are new). Everything is turned up a notch or two in comparison to the Le Rouge. A bit of classy oak, and the overall balance of the wine is impeccable - with an abundance of ripe tannins, nicely offset by the acidity and fruit. Aromas of ripe black cherry, raspberry, redcurrant, bramble fruit, garrigue herbs, damp earth, tobacco and soy. On the palate, it is herby and savoury with masses of black fruit flavours and a touch of kirsch. A serious - and seriously delicious - red wine, up there with the very best the Languedoc has to offer.
