Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep/Drink

ABV:
14.5 %

Notes

A floral open nose precedes a juicy ripe palate, slightly more red fruit orientated than the Vacqueyras. Brimming with absolutely glorious flavours of damson, victoria plum, sweet wild hedgerow fruits finely interwoven with chalky tannins. Tremendous grip and a nice gentle freshness too. Explosive and heady but without being too much. Big is definitely beautiful here. An unoaked blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre from rocky, late-ripening parcels high up in the Dentelles de Montmirail.

Notes
Brilliant ruby. Assertive red and dark berry scents are complicated by suggestions of candied flowers, spicecake and vanilla. Concentrated yet lively on the palate, offering juicy blackberry and cherry-vanilla flavors that fan out slowly on the back half. Shows strong closing energy, building sweetness and late-arriving, well-knit tannins.

Clos des Cazaux

Clos des Cazaux

The families Vache and Archimbaud have grown vines in the Vacqueyras area for 3 centuries. Gabriel Archimbaud participated in the process of the creation of the Côtes du Rhône appellation and he named his own domaine Clos des Cazaux. His granddaughter married Maurice Vache, her two sons Jean-Michel and Frédéric Vache run the domain today and is the 5th generation of pure vignerons. The brothers are meticulous, obsessively so, their hands on vine-growing and wine-making are resulting in impeccably pure, bright, soulful Southern Rhônes. WINemaking is designed to enhance the quality and purity of the fruit, élévage is uniquely in steel and concrete vat. The delicious Templiers is made mainly from old vines Syrah displaying great depth, dark fruit richness and finesse. The complex, structured and powerful Gigondas La Tour Sarrazine, which only comes from vines high up in the Dentelles, is a full-flavoured Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre blend that demonstrates the harmonising effect of good fruit and acidity in a wine.These are some of the most consistently exciting, and underrated, wines in the Southern Rhône.
