This super wine is from the AOP Terrasses du Larzac in Languedoc and is outstanding value at this price point. One to be enjoyed on special occasions. The grapes were handpicked from 30 year vines and then manually sorted back at the winery to select just the very best. After fermentation in stainless steel vats the wine was aged in oak barrels for 18 months to produce a stunning wine that will easily captivate you for an entire Sunday afternoon.
Chateau Capion Rouge
Grape: 60% Syrah, 30% Grenache 10% Mourvedre
Food: Perfect with grilled meat or pork loin served with seasonal vegetables
Tasting Notes: This is lovely deep purple in colour, luring you in. The nose is an explosion of berries and forest fruits that entices you again. Finally you sip it and there is a burst of fruit to begin with followed by lovely spices and beautifully elegant tannins. Wow! I think I need to open a bottle now
