This wine is a blend of three grapes : Syrah and Grenache and Merlot Noir. Both the Syrah and the Grenache grow on the same plot that is emblematic of the estate – a gravelly terrace with large, round pebbles, evidence of a river bed here a few million years ago – while the Merlot Noir is planted on a sun-soaked south-facing slope.
Following my own tastes and passion for this terroir, I’ve made a wine that I hope will get your taste buds tingling and give you a great wine-tasting experience! Its brilliant ruby-red colour with deep purple tints is proof of great freshness. The nose has a subtle blend of black berried-fruits – blackberry and blackcurrant – and a hint of spicy pepper and Mediterranean herbs – Syrah’s signature flavour. I love the rounded, creamy front palate and the long, fresh finish. For me, Cassagnau is an open, generous, fruity and expressive wine. My greatest satisfaction would be for you to get the same pleasure out of it as I do, by passing it round at an informal meal or just sharing a glass or two with friends.
