wines

Our wines represent the purity and authenticity of the vineyards they are coming from. All grapes are carefully selected and hand-picked and fermentations are all natural. The only compound added to the wine is sulphur, no other additions are made. The wines are bottled without fining or filtering. Charivari wines can be fresh, complex, rich or exciting  but they all reflect the fruit of our vines and are results of a simple winemaking. These wines are truly cheerful and at their best when enjoyed with great company!

L'Aventure Nocturne

This wine is made from 100% organically grown Merlot. The grapes are hand-picked and naturally fermented in small open-top stainless steel vats. The extraction is done by hand (pigeage) during alcoholic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrels and the wine is racked once a year. The wine is bottled without fining or filtering and therefore natural deposit may appear in the bottle.

The wine has ripe fruit character with some earthy and spicy aromas. Great to combine with good dinners and long nights. The label is designed by Jenna Kunnas and it shows the biodiversity of the organic parcel where the wine comes from, and the magical adventure that takes place during the nights.

Le fruit défendu

Grapes for this wine come from a friendly neighbour's parcel. They are pressed and the juice settles in a cool temperature for about 24 hours. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in French oak barrels, and some barrels go through partly malolactic fermentation too. No new oak is used. The wine matures in the same barrels for about 12 months and is then bottled without fining or filtering.

The name "Le Fruit Défendu" is French for the forbidden fruit. This wine is an interesting mystery, somewhat forbidden, as the beautiful unique flower on the label. The label is designed by Jenna Kunnas.

 
L'Amour Fragile.jpg

L’AMOUR FRAGILE
This wine is a 100% Sauvignon Blanc from our organic vineyards in the commune of Laroque. It’s picked by hand, the stems are removed and the grapes are put into amphora for a skin-contact fermentation. The wine stays on skins for about 20 days and then the skins and seeds are removed. The wine matures in the same amphora for about 6 months and is then bottled without fining or filtering.

The wine is rich and has a bold structure. You can find aromas of citrus, grapefruit and gentle nuttiness that comes from slight oxidation. The beautiful artwork is designed by Jenna Kunnas.

LA ROSE SAUVAGE
This rosé wine is made from 100% organic Malbec, which is picked by hand, macerated in the press for about 15 minutes, pressed into juice and fermented naturally in a stainless steel tank. It was kept on light lees for a few months and bottled without fining or filtering.

The wine is fruity and has plenty of notes of strawberries and raspberries. Great wine to enjoy with rich country side salads or couscous and other veggie dishes. The label is designed by Jenna Kunnas and it shows the wild roses that grow in the property.

Vin Abandonné

The wine is made from 100% organic Semillon, that was picked and pressed in September 2004. The fermentation took place in an oak barrel and it has since been maturing in our cellar for over 10 years. It has been racked once in 2016 and then bottled straight from the barrel with no additions. Only 245 bottles were made.

Vin Abandonné wine has aged for 150 months in a French oak barrel. It's beautifully oxidised and filled with flavours of almonds, nuts and raisins. At its best when served as an digestif, with cheeses or with a classic French onion soup!
