Notes

Bright, generous and forthcoming this is full of glorious, violet, dark bramble and black cherry. Warming and sensual yet with such precision and clarity to the fruit. Sumptuous and juicy very open knit, not as beefy and concentrated as the 2018, but very attractive. The foreground is a colourful display of dark fruit, the tannins appear in the background providing structure and grip. A Syrah dominated blend whole bunch fermented then aged in large steel tanks.

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.
