Mas des Agrunelles is situated north-west of Motpellier up on the Terrace du Larzac. Unlike the typical wines of the region. Frederic and Stephanie make delicate and subtle wines with gentle extraction. Rather than focusing on varietals, each of the 12 Mas des Agrunelles cuvees showcases the terroir of individual parcels covering 25ha and a range of soil types from fractured Jurassic limestone to red Marne. Biodynamic principles are followed right down to the bottling on fruit days .
The Carino comes from an old plot of Carignan located next to the estate, planted in the 1950s. Whole bunch maceration and aged in concrete eggs for 7or 8 months.
