The nose evokes cherries, then evolves towards notes of almonds and nuts and all the aromatic palette characteristic of rancios. Very nice impression of very ripe black fruits (cherry, blackcurrant) which are reminiscent of a vintage port.

Domaine Le Conte des Floris
Cartagène noire LBV 2014
France - Languedoc
Cartagène, cartagena in Occitan, is a traditional and typical Languedoc liqueur wine (mistelle). It is obtained from must of fresh grapes and wine brandy.
Cold settling, direct entonnage, mutage with alcohol aged in barrels for 2 years, aging for 2 years in barrels not topped up.
Grenache noir, a touch of mourvèdre
The color is intense, slightly marked on the edge of the disc by tiled reflections. The nose evokes the cherry, then evolves towards notes of almonds and nuts and all the aromatic palette characteristic of rancios. This oxidative side does not appear at all at the attack on the palate where the fresh fruit surprises very pleasantly: a lot of greed and the well integrated sugar brings a welcome smoothness. There remains a very nice impression of very ripe black fruits (cherry, blackcurrant) which make you think of a vintage port.
