Domaine Balansa Versicolore - velvet and blackberry
Grape: 100% Carignan
Vin de France
Don’t be fooled by the monocépage Carignan, this is an extremely fragrant and berry-ish cuvée, with oh-so-smooth tanins! A really beautiful wine.
'Versicolore'means « changing colors ». They chose this name because originally they wanted this cuvée to change every year.
When they started before 2018, they wanted it to be a blend of the best grapes for each vintage. But since 2018 they made it a 100% Carignan cuvée, because they are inspired by their hundred years old Carignan vines. Versicolore is vinified in carbonic maceration. They stay in concrete tanks for 16 days, then in oak barrels.
