Domaine de Cazaban Jours de Vigne 2011
Jours de Vigne 2011
IGP Côtes de Lastours
This is made from Syrah, Grenache and old vine Carignan, using a proportion of maceration carbonique wine – the method used in Beaujolais – to enhance the fresh, fruity characteristics of the grapes.
It has a medium/deep ruby colour with a mouth-watering nose of wild flowers, blackcurrant and blackberry. On the palate it is very silky and elegant with soft, leafy, blackcurrant and plum flavours, finishing with very gentle tannin and acidity. The flavours linger on at the finish with hints of liquorice. Lovely to drink now, but can be kept happily for up to five years.
