Carpe Divem Quatre
This wine's real point of difference is that it is a blend of three consecutive vintages. CARPE DIVEM 'Quatre' is a blend of 2014, 2015 and 2016 and was bottled in August 2019. The wine is 95% Merlot from a 65 ares plot in the Foncaude area, in Lagamas (Hérault, France). The remaining 5% is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault from the Boissières vineyard in Montpeyroux (the same vines used for DIVEM).
