2018 Mas des Bressades 'Les Vignes de Mon Pere' Cabernet/Syrah

2018 Mas des Bressades 'Les Vignes de Mon Pere' Cabernet/Syrah
Rhône, France

The Cabernet Sauvignon vines used for this cuveé are upwards of 70 years old and the Syrah is a measly 40 years old! All this old vine goodness is first fermented in tank, then rests in concrete before being aged in barrel for 12 months. The result is a texturally rich, luxurious red wine. The blackberry and plum fruit is dense with notes of licorice and spice. The finish is elongated and fresh. For such a powerful wine, the overall impression is one of polish and finesse.

90 points, Wine Enthusiast. "Cabernet Sauvignon is a rarity in the Costières de Nîmes, but Mas des Bressades relies on 70-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah vines to make this robust red. Exceptionally ripe this vintage, its black-currant and cherry flavors are concentrated yet angular, edged by graphite and fine, gripping tannins. Aged one year in oak, it lingers on notes of cedar and sweet spice. It offers incredible value for an elegant red, at peak now through 2030."
