The Cabernet Sauvignon grape has now established itself in the Languedoc. It always takes a while to find the right substrate, but in places with poorer soils, this grape ripens under almost ideal conditions. The grapes come from vineyards around the cities of Narbonne, Beziers and Montpellier. The climate here is warm enough to allow the skins of the Cabernet to mature properly, giving the wine from this classic Bordeaux grape a wonderfully round and smooth character. It is made on its fruit, with a lot of power and a nice suppleness. Classic, yet beautifully ripe and soft. A successful example of what the Pays d'Oc has to offer in terms of delicious red.
The Dumanet Cabernet Sauvignon has an intense cherry red color in the glass with notes of plums, blueberries and black cherries, jam, sultry, smoky, coffee, nicely fruity. In the mouth the wine is intense and powerful, ripe and sultry, polished, chocolate, full and intense, creamy finish with a little pepper. We recommend drinking this wine at around 16 degrees.
FACT : The label shows 2 cycling men, which reminds us of the beautiful bike rides through the vineyards. The winemaker used to cycle through the vineyards with the idea of making a top wine from this one, well he succeeded so many years later.
