Dom de Cassagnau Pinot Noir

Pays Doc
A beautiful ruby hue with brilliant tints at the rim. The nose is redolent of cherry, with spicy notes emerging on swirling. The fresh attack with hints of violet heralds in a silky palate with supple tannins, which develop peppery notes at the finish. A wine to uncork right away to take full advantage of its freshness and fine array of aromas. A fabulous wine for enjoying with friends on summer evenings.

With this cuvee, my aim was to pay tribute to Pinot Noir. Here at Cassagnau, this variety, which is absolutely emblematic of Burgundy’s finest wines, has exactly the terroir it needs to express itself to the full. Like its compatriot, Chardonnay, the combination of Mediterranean and Atlantic climates provides the freshness and humidity it thrives on.

Following my own tastes and my passion for this terroir, I made this wine in the hope of getting your tastebuds tingling and giving you an enjoyable wine-tasting experience! It is an elegant ruby hue with brilliant tints at the rim. The nose unashamedly displays the cherry notes so typical of Pinot Noir with a spicy, even peppery touch. The fresh palate, nicely set off by hints of violet and berried fruit, is silky and supple, with elegant tannins extending all the way to the enticing finish.

« This wine is unfiltered and has not been treated to prevent the precipitation of tartaric acid, so you may find slight deposits of crystals of tartar from the grapes. This is in no way detrimental to quality »

Produced in the low foothills of the Pyrenees, where the climates of the Mediterranean and Atlantic meet, this original blend –light and easy-to-drink – makes Cassagnau a Languedoc wine with the accent of the south-west. Jacques Abet, doctor by profession, winemaker by passion, runs this family-owned estate with enthusiasm and painstaking care in a terroir that is unique. Family-owned since the eighteenth century, the estate owes its longevity to its women. Jacques’ grandmother Berthe, who managed the estate for six decades, took it through two world wars and many a viticultural crises. He inherited this family property from his mother, Jacqueline. Today, it’s thanks to his wife Colette that Jacques, who had chosen to pursue a career in medicine, is
able to satisfy his passion for winegrowing and for the terroir in which he grew up.

You’ll find Jacques in the tiny village of Pauligne near Limoux, at the heart of “Cathar country”. For the past few years, thanks to passionate dedication, strict standards and an authentic approach, he has been breathing new life into the estate. Whenever the vines need him, he swaps his doctor’s coat for winegrower’s gear, driving the tractor, pruning or working in the winery with his oenologist. The scientist in him gives way to the farmer, repeating the same gestures as his ancestors before him. An enthusiastic head of a magnificent estate, this bon vivant has succeeded in reconciling his two activities of GP and winemaker.

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