"A rich and round well-balanced wine with good structure." — Thomas L.
Fruit from a fluke of nature
Cabernet Sauvignon finds great potential for expression in Pays d’Oc, but the variety in fact originated in Bordeaux. It is recognised the world over and is part of the blend of many great wines. It came about when two other grape varieties, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc were crossed by chance. Nature sometimes works in mysterious ways; Roche Mazet knows this and has succeeded in getting the very best from it.
The very best of a great grape variety
Cabernet Sauvignon is known for its concentrated well-structured wines with intense colour and red fruit aromas. When it is grown in Languedoc-Roussillon, it expresses all its strong points with a great deal of elegance. Roche Mazet selects wines from the areas where Cabernet Sauvignon expresses its best on the hills and plains of Pays d’Oc, thereby offering a blend that brings out the full aromatic range of this great variety, enhanced by being aged in wood.
The Roche Mazet Cabernet Sauvignon varietal displays an intense red robe with lovely ruby tints. It is aged in wood and has a silky, well-balanced structure. Aromas of blackcurrant, cherry and truffle on the nose mingle with hints of vanilla. Elegance is the keynote on the palate throughout the whole tasting experience with hints of red fruit and the characteristic Roche Mazet woodiness on the finish.
