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.

Discover our wines with multiple expressions
Our varietal wines, our easy drinking wines, come exclusively from private wineries. This is the only way to ensure that the wines are vinified naturally, respecting the specific aromatic characteristics of each grape variety. This is also a guarantee that we will obtain the same product profile from one vintage to the next, along with an authentically typical character, a far cry from your average wines. We seek a harmonious balance of fruit and freshness that will enable the wine to develop in an exciting way. We are also very interested in original, unknown or little known grape varieties which take us into uncharted taste territory.
Our appellation wines come from areas between the Cévennes and the Camargue, between the Montagne Noire and the Mediterranean, from the Pyrenees foothills to the border of the Spanish coast – the array of terroirs is incredibly diverse. Considered to be the biggest wine region in the world, the Languedoc Roussillon is where one finds the greatest variety of soils. All these advantages and all this diversity provide us with extraordinary creative ground for the production of our wines..
