Subappellation of after the municipality Cotes du Roussillon-Villages in the southern French region of Roussillon. The full name is Côtes du Roussillon-Villages Caramany . As a special rule, at least 60% of the grapes must be used for the red wine, but the entire proportion of Carignan (which may not exceed 60%) Maceration carbonique (Carbonic acid mixture) are fermented. The reason for this peculiar regulation is that the local cooperative Caramany was the first producer in France to use this technique in 1964.
