Cuvée des Cadettes 2016
The Cuvée des Cadettes is an entire story!
Indeed, it was the first plot replanted after the phylloxera aphid ravaged millions of hectares of vines. We owe this first plantation to Joseph Ducos, the estate’s owner, in the nineteenth century. Since then, the Cuvée des Cadettes has been made with the best grenache, syrah, and mourvèdre grapes expressing this unique terroir – elegant, intense, sophisticated, and well-balanced. To be enjoyed with wild game, aged meats, and other dishes as rare and complex as this wine.
This deep ruby intense Grenache blend offers a very expressive nose, full of black cherry, blackcurrant and sweet spices notes. The palate is fresh, well-balanced, enhances with graphite and boysenberries aromas. Perfectly matured tannins give the feeling of a long, fullbodied and elegant wine that can age for 20 years at least.
