2014 Clos des Cazaux Gigondas Tour Sarrasine

Producer: Domaine Le Clos des Cazaux
Country/Region: France - Rhone Valley - Gigondas AOC

This strong, warm wine comes from a selection of grapes planted on exceptional soils. The vineyards in Gigondas are situated on the arid hills of the Dentelles de Montmirail. The Mistral blows regularly on these slopes which limits the amount of treatment needed to the vines. The vines grow on stony soils and produce wine that can be kept easily for 10 yrs.

Intense, persistent red and dark fruit aromas. Raspberry, pepper and spice flavors. Silky tannins.
