2017 Chateau Auzias ‘Instinct Terrien’ AOP Cabardes

2017 Chateau Auzias ‘Instinct Terrien’ AOP Cabardes

$160

“Here’s yet another surprise: the formerly little-known appellation of Cabardès made it into our Decanter World Wine Awards ‘Best in Show’ selection in London in spring 2018, and now the AOP has done it again, with yet another outstanding effort, this time impressing our Asian judges. This blend of 60% Cabernet Franc with 30% Syrah and 10% Grenache is saturated black-red in colour, surrendering fresh, floral aromas backed by enticing black-raspberry and mulberry fruits. On the palate, the wine is deep yet full of lively charm, perfectly summarizing the ‘crossover’ appeal of this appellation, which lies half-way between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. Fine-grained tannins and lacy, billowing acidity carry that raspberry/mulberry fruit all the way to a fresh, graceful finish. Cabernet Franc fans should seek it out.”
