Jeff Carrel

Vielle Mule Golden Rosé


WINE 71



FRESH & DRY


An unconventional rosé wine - exactly as winemaker Jeff Carrel is - made from red grapes (60% Grenache) blended with white (40% Muscat). The wine tastes of rosé - but the color appears very light due to being mixed with white wine. Super fresh, dry and very mouth-watering. It masters the fine balance between fruit intensity and lightness of expression. Small red berries and a hint of melon, orange blossom, dried spices balanced by a fine acidity.


FRISK & TØR


En utraditionel rosévin - præcis som vinmager Jeff Carrel er det - der er lavet på røde druer (60% Grenache) blended med hvide (40% Muscat). Vinen smager af rosé - men farven fremstår meget lys pga. blendet med hvidvin. Super frisk, tør og meget læskende. Den mestrer den fine balance mellem frugtintensitet og lethed i udtrykket. Små røde bær og en snert melon, orangeblomst, tørrede krydderier balanceret af en fin syre.

ABOUT THE WINERY


JEFF CARREL


Jeff Carrel is originally a chemist from Paris without a wine family. He studied oenology with interest and it captivated him more and more. For many years he has made wine for others around the world and in various French wine regions; and later for himself with rented land or bought grapes and loaned cellar equipment in the South of France; driven by his persistent ambition and interest.Via his large network, both within trade and the gradually many growers he has worked with, he operates as an octopus in many locations throughout the Languedoc-Roussillon area. In 2017, he was finally able to set up his own domicile in an old wine cellar from 1857 in Corbieres, with 31 tanks and various oak barrels, but still makes many of his wines at other vineyards.He sees grape varieties, soils, local climate conditions and vinification techniques as a gigantic puzzle that he can utilize to make wines in the style he likes.


Jeff Carrel er oprindeligt kemiker fra Paris uden vinfamilie. Han læste ønologi af interesse, og det fængede ham mere og mere. Han har i mange år lavet vin for andre rundt om i verden og i forskellige franske vinområder; og senere for sig selv med lejet jord eller købte druer og udlånt kælderudstyr i Sydfrankrig; drevet af sin vedholdende ambition og interesse.

Via sit store netværk, både indenfor handel og de efterhånden mange dyrkere, han har arbejdet sammen med, opererer han som en blæksprutte på mange lokaliteter i hele Languedoc-Roussillon området. I 2017 har han endelig kunnet indrette sit eget domicil i en gammel vinkælder fra 1857 i Corbieres, med 31 tanke og diverse egefade, men laver stadigvæk mange af sine vine på andre vingårde.

Han ser druesorter, jordbunde, lokale klimaforhold og vinifikationsteknikker som et gigantisk puslespil, han kan udnytte til at lave vine i den stil, han kan lide.
