The Les Jamelles Cabernet Sauvignon is rich, spicy, complex, with real personality. This Cabernet Sauvignon boasts all of the character traits of this celebrated grape variety along with interesting notes that are linked to its various terroirs of origin. The grapes (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) and are completely destemmed. Maceration, under monitored temperatures, is long and includes several pump-overs.
Following malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in tanks for approximately 6 months. A small portion of the cuvée is aged in oak barrels.
Featuring beautiful deep red colour, Les Jamelles Cabernet Sauvignon reveals flavours of red fruit (blackcurrant, strawberry) combined with a refreshing, slightly green note (fresh peppercorns, typical of the varietal) and spicy flavours (cinnamon, mint, honey). The finish boasts subtle woodiness (with aromas of cedar, oak and walnut). The tannins are soft and silky.
Serve at 17 – 18°C with traditional dishes such as shepherd’s pie, gratins, beef and vegetable stew, grilled meats, or rack of lamb. Catherine Delaunay particularly recommends serving it with cassoulet, the Languedoc’s emblematic dish.
Store your unopened bottle in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 7 to 15°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
