The Giner family is a big fan of the Mourvèdre and Carignan varieties; for example their meaty smoky Les Marnes Bleues contains around 70% of the former in its blend. Other traditional style, rustic yet elegantly balanced reds include their La Séranne and L'Yeuse Noire cuvées. All of these wines age very well and start to show real complexity after about five years; and Charles Giner takes great pleasure in tasting and talking about them with you in their cave-like old cellar. It’s worth driving around the Montpeyroux area just to take in its wild remote beauty, as well as visiting other estates such as Domaine Boisantin (Charles’ daughter Anne Jeffroy in fact!); and the village co-op makes good everyday wines too.
