Carignan Blanc Domaine Ledogar 2018, organic/biodynamic, maturation in old barrels, full bodied white, waxy, layered and delicious. Like Pinot noir and Grenache, Carignan has mutated to produce white-berried and pink-berried colour mutations known as Carignan Blanc and Carignan Gris. In its white form, the grape is quite light in aroma but very textural in the mouth. With a little time and some oak maturation, it develops rich, warm, waxy flavours which grow in the mouth and linger on the finish. High acidity balances the rich palate. An eclectic yet delicious white wine for mature creamy cheeses, pates, potatoes cooked with cream, Poultry, Pork and more….yum.

Domaine Ledogar is a 22 hectares estate on the Terroir of Corbieres Boutenac – near Carcasonne – laboured on by two brothers Xavier and Mathieu, winemakers for 4 generations.

Xavier Ledogar, who has always loved nature, started working in the vineyards when he was 12. In 1997 he took over the Domaine on his own and built a new cellar to start making his own wine rather than selling the fruit to the cooperative in the age old French peasant tradition. From the outset, Xavier has been committed to Biodynamic production, eschewing all chemical and mechanical inputs to the point that they even use horses and donkeys for ploughing and natural weed killers! Pure wines of great character are the result, a must try for lovers of southern French wines.

The signature Cuvee is La Mariole, made from very old vines of Carignan, some over 100 years old.  This delightful wine shows the variety's capacity for freshness and depth at the same time and is so versatile, it can do grilled meat in the winter and served chilled with Charcuturie in the summer.  The more expensive Cuvee are profound and rich with a fantastic capacity to age.
