Domaine Le Clos des Cazaux Gigondas Souiras 2020

Old vine Grenache

“Le Souiras” is located at the very South end of the Gigondas appellation at 250 metres in altitude in the Dentelles de Montmirail hills. The soils are stony with a layer of grey and blue clay under the topsoil. The slopes face west and are protected from the strong summer sun by the Montmirail hill. This longer-ripening location allows the old Grenche vines to bring stunning complexity and balance to their wines.

Dark intense ruby colour. On the nose this wine reveals a beautiful bouquet of little red fruits, vanilla, white pepper, caramel and juniper berry. On the palate, the wine is dense, velvety and complex with aromas of black cherry, mocha and white pepper.

The finish is long, with very silky tannins and a just a slight bitterness that gives this exceptional Grenache an impression of freshness. This is big wine that will benefit from cellaring and is best drunk 5 to 10 years from the vintage but will also reward you up to 15 years.

Producer profile

Domaine Clos des Cazaux has been growing wine for five generations and is based on two families, the Vaches and the Archimbauds. The domaine is now run by two brothers, Jean-Michel and Frédéric Vache. Their ancestor, Gabriel Archimbaud was the first to bottle wine in Vacqueyras. Gabriel created Le Clos des Cazaux in 1936. Today the domaine cultivates 48 ha (122 acres), of which 24 ha are in Vacqueyras, 20 ha are in Gigondas and 4 ha are in Côtes du Rhône. The Gigondas terroir is located on the small section of the appellation that is south facing which brings riper, bigger fruit than is generally found in the other wines of the appellation. Cazaux’s Gigondas soils are very high in limestone content which underpin a great mineral edge to their two cuvées. The Prestige cuvée made from old vines is partially aged in oak which provides additional complexity without over-powering the expression of terroir in the wine.
