About the maker
José Carvalho runs the tiny domaine La Cave des Nomades in Banyuls and in a tiny space of time, is already creating some of the sought after wines being made in the south of France.
José is farming in one of the most dramatic and remarkable terroir in Europe. The soils are dominated by schist and, as a result the wines are often imparted with a freshness, maturity and minerality that are all hard to find combined in others. Farming is being done sensibly and with respect to biodynamic principles and the winemaking is being done with a total level of care by someone with an innate sense of flavour and balance. Reportedly José is a man of a great, great palate, patience, intelligence and a forward thinker. Thanks to Campbell for the notes.See the La Cave des Nomades collection here
