Jacques Abet, doctor by profession, winemaker by passion, runs this family-owned estate with enthusiasm and painstaking care on a terroir that is unique.

    TASTING NOTES

    This bottle holds all the generosity, character and personality of our terroir at Cassagnau! A beautiful, sombre wine with an expressively fruity bouquet and a hint of spice and Mediterranean herbs that herald in a smooth, creamy palate with velvety tannins. Definitely a wine to share with friends over an informal meal or, slightly chilled, simply as an aperitif.

    AGEING

    Best drunk young, within 2-3 years of vintage.

    TASTING NOTES

    Every effort has been made to get our taste buds tingling here! The brilliant ruby-red colour with deep purple tints promises a wine of great freshness. The nose reveals a subtle blend of black-berried fruits – blackberry and blackcurrant – and a hint of spicy pepper and Mediterranean herbs, which is Syrah’s signature flavour. This is a true charmer of a wine, with a round front-of-palate and creamy extract and a superbly fresh finish. An open, generous, fruity and expressive wine. Distinctly easy-to-drink and made for sharing with friends and family, with or without food.
