Saint-Chinian “Le Banel” Domaine les Païssels 2020
Still relatively unknown in the New World, the wines of Languedoc-Roussillon are the best-kept secrets. Domaine les Païssels, located at Babeau, 5km from the Saint-Chinian of the Languedoc region, is on shale slopes. Found in a fragile soil balance, Schist is a rare rock that gives great personality to wines. The region gets the best sunshine from the Mediterranean climate while ripens the grapes in the most intriguing way.
Blending both major grapes of Spanish origin, Grenache and Carignan, Le Banel promises intensity and richness from these elegant grapes that are grown on the shale slopes.
