Carpe Divem Trois

This wine's real point of difference is that it is a blend of three consecutive vintages. The blend number is written in letters on the label, to identify the different blends of each vintage. CARPE DIVEM 'TROIS' (2011, 2012, 2013) was bottled in August 2016. The blending of different vintages is very common in Champagne but very rare for red wines, most famous example being Vega Sicilia's Reserva Especial. The weather makes a great difference to our vintages, and because of this, blending different vintages is a way of reducing the effect of the weather, by evening it out; poetically speaking, one might say the wrinkles of time is smoothen away. Some might say that by blending, something is lost, and in a way this is true. The mark of a particular year is effectively erased, in other words, the vintage effect. Blend of Merlot 70%, Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault 30%
