  • Goedhuis, November 2007

    Though predominately Cabernet Sauvignon (75-80%), this wine also contains a smattering of others - 10 to be exact. As a result, depending on the vintage a wine can take on very different aromatics that are not necessarily characteristically Cabernet. The 2006 is wonderfully pure with a nose of fresh, plump blueberry, cassis and lightly toasted spice. It has impressive focus and minerality which adds extra finesse. A very pretty wine with backbone.

In the 1970s, a Parisian glove manufacturer named Aimé Guibert was looking for a calmer life. He purchased property at the bottom of a valley that was once an ancient Gallo-Roman settlement.

In the 1970s, a Parisian glove manufacturer named Aimé Guibert was looking for a calmer life. He purchased property at the bottom of a valley that was once an ancient Gallo-Roman settlement. Surrounded by thick, garrigue scrub and glacial, mineral-rich earth, it seemed a perfect site for viticulture...that is, to Bordeaux oenologist Henri Enjalbert. He convinced Aimé to plant grapes and with the help of oenologist extraordinaire, Émile Peynaud, he began producing wine. Despite their southern France location, they have a markedly unique micro-climate. Housed in a deep valley, cool air is drawn down from the mountains, particularly in the summer evenings, creating extraordinary, daily temperature swings ranging from 0 - 30'C. As a result, they are able to grow a plethora of varieties successfully from both cool and warm areas including Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Viognier and Petit Manseng for the white and Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo, Tempranillo, Pinot Noir and Tannat for the red - all the while attaining excellent ripeness while retaining the varieties fresh acidity. With their extraordinary terroir and determination, they have over the years established a reputation as the "Grand Cru of the Languedoc". Anyone who has tasted them would most likely concur. These are truly exciting wines worth discovering.Read less

Region

Vin de Pays de l'Herault

Originally intended to denote simple country wines that showed broad regional characteristics, the Vin de Pays category now includes many shining stars that fall outside the strict appellation regulations. Herault is a Departmental Vin de Pays covering the region surrounding Montpellier on the Mediterranean coast of France. Largely producing red wines from the classic southern grape varieties (Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, etc), a few rosés and whites can also be found. The most celebrated wines from the area, both with a cult following, are Mas de Daumas Gassac and La Grange des Peres.
