Black fruit with a smattering of Languedoc herbs
Hearty southern French red with a delicious mentholy edge from all that Cabernet. As it has some gripping tannins you're advised to serve it up with a rich dish that will give them something to melt into.
'Aromas of red and black fruits that make your mouth water, lightly peppery. Utterly drinkable, so juicy and refreshing without being simple. Lively at first and then spreads across the palate. Tannins are present but smoothly in the background to give some structure. Showing the best qualities of both Cabernets. Very good value' 16.5/20 Julia Harding MW on JancisRobinson.com November 2013 (2010 vintage)
'A blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon displaying a somewhat feminine presence with its charming floral nose like a little bouquet of violet and lavender. These characteristics are amplified on the palate where the elegant body and super fine tannins would perfectly suit a lamb rack, roasted but not beyond pink, with rosemary and garlic' Alan Kingsbury, Foodepedia February 2014 (2010 vintage)
Praise for the 2009 vintage:
Wine of the Week - Independent on Sunday 16th September 2012
'From an estate near Carcassonne, organic since 1989, but also demonstrating a real sense of the wine's origins. A lip-smacking and nicely balanced blend of tar and leather tastes of Cabernet Sauvignon and crunchy freshness from its cousin, Cabernet Franc, this is packed with black-fruit flavours and scents of garrigue herbs. Cries out for tomato-based dishes such as a Provencal vegetable tian or baked pasta.' Terry Kirby
Best Buy - Scotland of Sunday 16th September 2012
'This is intense, with length, depth, clear touches of minerality and up-front flavours of prunes, black cherries and cloves. Made from Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, it shouts 'organic' long before you read the label. Lovely.' Brian Elliott
Organic since 1989, with appproximately 40 hectares of vineyards planted on a range of loam, chalk, marl and sandstone soils, Gabriel and Wenny are able to plant their vines in the soil that suits each of the grapes best. Blessed with the Languedoc's predictable sunshine, they also benefit from the cooling sea breezes. A perfect combination for any vine to thrive in!
