Domaine Le Clos des Cazaux Vacqueyras Cuvée des Templiers 2021

Syrah / Grenache

The vines are planted on the marl, clay and sandy slopes around the estate. They have an East-West exposure. As such, the sun warms up the grapes very early in the morning, drying off from the morning dew in September. But by the end of the afternoon, the hillside protects them from the overheated rays of the setting sun. The sandy soils are very poor, resulting in low yields and concentrated wines.

Rich ruby colour with purple tints. The very aromatic and complex bouquet opens up to blackberry, dark cherry and spice. The taste is unmistakeably Syrah with a lot of substance. This wine is characterised by the generosity of the fruit and the elegance of the tannins. The smoothness of the tannins allows this wine to be drunk relatively young but even more complexity arrives on the palate after 5 years of ageing.

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.
