Planted in huge amounts in the south of France, the Carignan is heavy in acidity,tannins and color, which make it great for blending, exhibiting flavors of pepper and plum.

In the Alias ??family, being a winemaker is transmitted from generation to generation. This is how Jean, Hector and Hervé, son of the earth, devoted themselves to the vineyard by habit and inheritance as did all the Languedocites, while living from another activity.

In 1997, Bernard Alias, the current owner, inherited the property of Douzens. In an economic context of wine crisis, the challenge to be met was for him the detonator of his determination to rise to the rank of the best of his appellation and to be worthy of this earth inherited in terroir of Alaric.

The path was difficult. He surrounded himself with many tips before replanting and restructuring the vineyard. Many hectares have been replanted today offering a wide range of grape varieties.

In 2012, their youngest daughter Christelle, after a little tour of the winemaking world, made a place for herself among this tribe of winegrowers and proudly claims her position as the first woman vine grower of the family.

In the Alias ??family, being a winemaker is transmitted from generation to generation. This is how Jean, Hector and Hervé, son of the earth, devoted themselves to the vineyard by habit and inheritance as did all the Languedocites, while living from another activity.

In 1997, Bernard Alias, the current owner, inherited the property of Douzens. In an economic context of wine crisis, the challenge to be met was for him the detonator of his determination to rise to the rank of the best of his appellation and to be worthy of this earth inherited in terroir of Alaric.

The path was difficult. He surrounded himself with many tips before replanting and restructuring the vineyard. Many hectares have been replanted today offering a wide range of grape varieties.

In 2012, their youngest daughter Christelle, after a little tour of the winemaking world, made a place for herself among this tribe of winegrowers and proudly claims her position as the first woman vine grower of the family.

About this product +

Producer >

Run with fantastic energy by the young Christelle Alias, this 38 ha estate lies at the foot of the Montagne d’Alaric in the northerly, cooler part of the Corbières. In 1997 the vineyards were completely restructured by Christelle’s father, Bernard, and are now cultivated organically. Christelle joined her father in 2012 after a tour of the viticultural world and has clearly had fun creating her wines: there is a juicy vibrancy – she clearly aims for freshness and elegance over extraction and power.

Viticulture >

Clay Limestone

Winemaking >

The three grape varieties are vinified separately, cold grenache, syrah and carignan in maceration for several weeks with a gentle and limited extraction in the spirit of an infusion. The blend is carried out after malo to obtain the best harmony of the fruit.
