Domaine Cabirau 2012 Maury Sec, Serge & Nicolas
Item Number: 39 10 287 12
This wine is from the South of France Rousillon region. The Domaine was started by Dan Kravitz whose Hand Picked Selections have been dazzling American consumers for years for their quality and value. He purchased his own vineyard in the Maury AOC which included 3.5 acres of 60 year old Greanche vines. The grapes from those vines are in this wine (60%) blended with 28% Syrah and 12% Carignan. The Wine Advocate scored it 90-93 and said "Moving to the Serge & Nicolas cuvee, this cuvee is mostly Grenache (from 60-year-old vines and brought up all in tank), with smaller components of Syrah and Carignan (which are brought up in 500-liter demi-muids). Looking first at the 2012 Maury Sec Serge & Nicolas, it exhibits an inky purple color to go with decadently styled notes of cassis, black raspberry, spice box, licorice and ground herbs. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with a fabulous texture, it should have 5-7 years of longevity."
