Karnage is the collaboration between longtime friends Charles Dagand and Stéphane Planche, who started their first vintage in 2020. Charles Dagand is the former partner of Alice Bouvot from Domaine l'Octavin where together they created the legendary domaine over 10 years. Since then, Charles has made his own wines under the name of Carlito, but after a couple of unfortunate vintages where he lost all his harvest to frost and disease, he decided to team up with Jura's infamous sommelier icon Stéphane Planche in this new project. Stéphane is the owner of the wine shop Les Jardins de Saint Vincent based in Arbois.

The grapes come from Charles' own vineyards, from friends in the Jura and the rest of France. They do the harvest themselves and vinify in Charles' cellar in Abergement-le-Grand just outside Arbois.

"Greska" is 85% Grenache Blanc from Pézenas in Hérault (a part of the Languedoc near Montpellier) and 15% Muscat of Alexandria from Canet en Roussillon in the Pyrenees-Orientales. The Grenache Blanc and the Muscat d'Alexandria were vinified separately. They use a technique called Trempette for half of both, which essentially is a cold infusion that gently extracts flavor and aromatics. The other half is pressed directly (i.e. white wine). This wine was bottled on Thursday December 9, 2021 & 1800 bottles were made. It has all the aromatics that Muscat traditionally provides, but combined with tight salinity and ripe fruit.
