Tasting notes Cazalet 2019

Garnet red, intense nose of red stewed fruits accompanied by notes of garrigue, eucalyptus and peonies. The palate is full and long with ripe and silky tannins. Notes of red fruits mingle with aromas of chocolate and mocha and a hint of menthol that brings balance and length to the finish.

Red fruits, spices and menthol notes from Grenache, concentration and roundness of Syrah, fine and structured tannins from Mourvèdre, fresh and aromatic herbs from Carignan: according to the purest, southern French tradition, each grape variety seems to bring its character and advantages into this cuvée.

Tasting notes Cazalet 2017

Sour cherries, raspberries, spices and grilled hazelnuts in the nose … A generous and rich bouquet, as befits a Mediterranean wine, dominated by Grenache and Carignan. On the palate, Syrah and Mourvèdre bring elegance and straight lines, as well as fresh tannins and mineral acidity. A precise and full-bodied wine, which wants to be accompanied by tasty, intense and fine dishes: Rack of Lamb with herb crust, Osso bucco, baked pumpkin with oriental spices, or even a simple piece of hard cheese, such as a Cantal Entre-Deux.

Tasting notes Cazalet 2015

With its explosive and rich bouquet, this wine shows the full potential of this great vintage in the Languedoc: Perfectly ripe and concentrated fruits, juniper, cedar, as well as flowery gust of broom. Crisp acidity and straight tannins, embedded in pleasant roundness and a Mediterranean ambience. It likes veal stew with roasted onions, but can still mature for 3 to 5 years in the cellar.
