When we were searching for wines to demonstrate the most typical signs of Brettanomyces, there were a number of wines we were expecting to be 'Brett bombs' that turned out to be pretty subtle. Not so with this wine! If you want to go to the barnyard dance, this is your ticket. Bow to the horse. Bow to the cow. Twirl with the pig if you know how.

A blend of Carignan, Grenache, and Syrah from Corbieres in the Languedoc, the Carignan comes from vines planted in 1905.  Sage, peppercorn, and finocchiona notes accompany the dark, rustic energy here. Domaine Sainte Croix was started by an English couple, Elizabeth and Jon Bowen, who worked in wineries around the world before settling in Fraissé des Corbières, just 20 minutes from the Mediterreanean Sea. This gives the wines a mix of dry heat and cooling sea breeze that keeps them from getting too heavy and fatiguing. Jonathan Kemp
