La Vieille Mule Rouge 2019
You can really taste the rugged landscape and sweltering sunshine in this wine. Ripe fruit and spice dominate, with a rustic, endearing edge.
IGP Côtes Catalanes
What we say
IGP Côtes Catalanes sits at the western edge of the Languedoc-Roussillon region, in the foothills of the Pyrenees. The sun-soaked vineyards are ideal for growing Grenache which thrives in the hottest climates, producing rich and powerful wines. The ripe red fruit in this wine is balanced by a rustic spice and lovely smooth texture.
What they say
Deep crimson. Fruits (tomatoes, ) and spices (balsamic, ). Cherry kirsch, wild herbs, liquorice, exotic spices. Medium bodied and voluptuous with a slight pearly effect which gives a light and airy side to the wine (airy is perhaps pushing it a bit), but in any case greedy!

About the producer Jeff Carrel
Today we are mainly working in Languedoc Roussillon but also in Bordeaux, Beaujolais and Burgundy. Jeff Carrel develops original ranges of wine, with original labels and affordable prices: simple wines but not simplistic. Each wine has its own universe and its own story to tell. Making wines with a strong identity, with societal and environmental values, technical precision and personality, all the way from the vines to the bottle. And if these wines exist it is because they are a reflection of the people behind them, a story of encounters, cultures, varieties, climates, and their only pretension is to be sincere.
