Winemaker's Notes

Four generations of the Bailbe family have made their home at the Las Collas estate in the foothills of the Pyrenees in southern France's Roussillon district. The Bailbes are Catalan, a people with a rich, ancient history in this Mediterranean region where France and Spain meet.

Winemaker Jacques Bailbe has selected a blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Mourvèdre harvested from 60-year-old vines for this single-vineyard wine. Two horses adorn the family's coat-of-arms and, in a whimsical gesture, an antique carousel horse dating back to the 1920s decorates the entrance to their château – a festive motif reflected on the front of this bottle. Vigne las Callas is part of a collection of single-vineyard wines from the Roussillon, each carefully selected by the Ey (pronounced "aye-ee") family.

Color: Deep crimson
Bouquet: Slightly smoky aroma that recalls dried cherry, ripe strawberry and exotic spices
Taste: Full-bodied and supple, brimming with opulent fruit nicely balanced by an underlying acidity
Varietals: 90% Grenache with 10% Mourvèdre from the same single vineyard
