Located on clay/limestone soils at the foothills of the Pyrenees near the French-Spanish border, the estate of Puig-Parahy dates back to 1446, while the vineyards go back to 993 AD. Taking advantage of 50 year old vines and low yields, the wines are made using natural methods: sustainable farming, hand harvesting, and natural yeast all come together to produce a complex, classical-styled wine with a distinct sense of place. Named after its winemaker, Georges, this wine is fermented and matured in concrete tanks. Enticing aromatics of ripe elderberries and cherries, Provençal herbs, Ceylon tea and briny minerals transform on the palate to juicy notes of black berries, red currants, and sweet spices. Lively acidity and smooth tannins make this a versatile choice for the table.
