Discover the grape variety: Canari
The Canary is rarely found in today's vineyards. Its origins are probably in the Pyrenees, precisely in the Ariège. Its repertoire of alternative appellations is vast. Boudalès from the Cévennes becomes folle noire in Fronton. It is also known as chalosse noire, ugne noire or canaril, and can be recognized by its early buds. The very productive vine shows remarkable vigour. Even the black rot does not get the better of this variety. The shoots are covered with foliage, the most exposed parts of which turn red in the autumn. When the grapes reach maturity, which occurs in the second late season, the Canari displays compact, section-shaped bunches of small to medium size. The fins are sometimes very crowded, gathering berries with characteristic colors. The bluish-black shell protects a very juicy flesh. A rather lightly coloured and ordinary wine emerges from the vinification of this variety.

In professional tastings and wine exams the wearing of perfume is banned, if not thoroughly frowned upon. You just don’t do it. What then, if we applied the same logic to music, controlling the sounds we hear, or don’t hear, while tasting wine? There’s no doubt that a chaotic environment can clog your synapses, makin ...
Andrew Jefford: ‘2021 has been the year of all the miseries’
How’s the weather been this year? Awful. ‘La nature m’écoeure’, one of my wine-growing friends posted on Facebook on 8 April, having been out to look at the frost-crippled shoots on his vines that morning: ‘Nature disgusts me’. It takes a lot to make a wine-grower feel that. He wasn’t alone. Jeremiads echo around the northern hemisphere as 2021 closes. It’s been the year of all the miseries. None suffered more horribly than the growers of Germany’s Ahr valley, where floodwaters caused by the fou ...
