Cndp Pere Caboche 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

70% of the black Grenache, 15% Syrah, 7% Mourvedre plus Cinsault, Counoise, Muscadin, Vacarese and Terret are used in the blend along with tiny amounts of the white Clairette, Bourboulenc, Picpoul, Picardin and Roussanne. The Cinsault and Syrah are kept whole while the other varieties are lightly crushed then fermented. The wine is aged in old wooden tonneau (large barrels) that allow the wine to mellow without adding oak flavours or harsh tannins.

Domaine du Père Caboche:
For generations my family has been both wine growers and blacksmiths. My father Théophile Boisson was orphaned when he was only three years old, hence he was unable to train to as a blacksmith. Fortunately his mother helped foster a keen interest in grapes and wine, that led to him becoming a wine maker. The family nickname of “Caboche” derives from the old Provencal word for horseshoe nails, by which our estate is still known.

80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Cinsault. The aromas are intense, dominated by blackcurrants and cherries. Whilst the wine can be kept for around five years, it is recommended that you drink it in its youth to retain all of it fruit and freshness in the mouth. A perfect all-around food wine, this Cotes-du-Rhone works extremely well with poultry, and any food flavoured with herbs.
