Calmel Joseph La Ruffe


Calmel Joseph La Ruffe
Calmel Joseph La Ruffe is a stunning wine with ageing potential but already drinking well. A Syrah Carignan blend named after the ‘ruffes’ clay limestone blood red soils of the Terrasses du Larzac. Packed with pure fruit and subtle notes of liquorice, menthol, herbs and chocolate. Really complex with elegant tannins on the long finish.

Founded in 1995, Calmel & Joseph is a maison de négoce specializing in Languedoc-Roussillon wines from private wineries from across the region. Over the years, we have built close personal relationships with a large number of growers from all appellations. Convinced of the extraordinary potential of this region, oenologist, Laurent Calmel, and Jerome Joseph work together on the vinification, blending and ageing of wines with the common purpose of demonstrating the little known yet unique quality of these Mediterranean terroirs. As well as our desire to produce high quality wines consistent with their terroirs, we are committed to making wines which reflect our convictions and experience.
