Calendal is a blend of 50% Mourvedre and 50% Grenache from the organic farms of Domaine des Escaravailles in Roaix. This wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for many years, drink now or store until 2020+.
"The personal project of the visionary and genius oenologist Philippe Cambie and his partner Gilles Ferran, this equal part blend of Mourvedre and Grenache has produced an allocation of 400 cases for the United States market. Move fast! This is a great effort, and the best Calendal produced to date. Dense bluish purple in color, with notes of graphite, blueberry, black raspberry, roasted mushrooms and meats, the wine has great intensity, full-bodied opulence, beautiful purity, texture and a multi-dimensional mouthfeel.

Drink it over the next 7-8 years. "
