This wine is a blend of three grapes: Syrah and Grenache and Merlot. 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 a few million years ago – while the Merlot is planted on a sun-soaked south-facing slope.
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. The front palate is rounded and creamy with a long, fresh finish. Cassagnau red is an open, generous, fruity and expressive wine.
