Les Cepages Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Pays du Gard

Lovely fruit driven Red from the Gard. Wonderful aromas of cassis (blackcurrant liqueur) and laurel. Full flavours of black cherry, dark chocolate and vanilla with notes of strawberry, pepper and violets. Smooth and mellow with soft tannins. Deep velvety body and a deliciously long fruity finish with undertones of leather and roasted coffee.

Product Description

rocca chtxA sublime blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from the renowned, award winning winery Les Vignerons de Roquemaure in the Southern Rhone. Les Vignerons du Roquemaure are based between Tavel and Chateauneuf du Pape and their new cuvee, Les Cepages, is made from ancient vineyards in the eastern most part of the Gard near the Mediterranean coast. The Gard marks the border between Provence, Languedoc and the Rhone Valley. This is the countryside of the Crusades, the Avignon Popes and the Church; Roquemaure Castle is the site of the death of Pope Clement V, who also owned Chateau Pape Clement in Bordeaux.

rocca m andcLes Cepages demonstrates the savoir faire the Roquemaure wine makers are famous for and its characteristics are close to those of rich, warm Rhone reds. In this region the classic blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon creates an intense and elegant partnership: complex Cabernet Sauvignon gives structure and body to Merlot’s legendary fruit. This combination, in the hands of Les Vignerons du Roquemaure, creates a wine that has beautiful purity of fruit and power but is also approachable and delicious to drink.

Les Cepages is also great with food; particularly Mediterranean dishes made with red or green peppers, Gnocchi, cold smoked meats and Cassoulet. It’s also good with chicken, guinea fowl, pork, venison and strongly flavoured cheeses.
