2013 Cabrières Rouge “Les Crozes”

Château des Deux Rocs

2013 Cabrières Rouge “Les Crozes” Château des Deux Rocs - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $22.00

This wine represents the latest release from Jean-Claude Zabalia, the seasoned vigneron who built his reputation producing delicious bargain country wines at Château Saint Martin de la Garrigue. With Deux Rocs, his new endeavor, Jean-Claude continues to unleash the rustic charm of the Languedoc, this time focusing on the Cabrières sub-zone and its notorious schist soils. While Cabrières is better known for its delicate, ethereal rosés, the growing conditions are also ideally suited to producing reds of great finesse and minerality. At 400 meters altitude, cool nighttime temperatures allow for focus and fresh acidity in this dark, concentrated blend of Syrah and Grenache. The wine is aged in a combination of large foudres and smaller barriques, giving it soft edges without compromising the tannic backbone that confers its intense structure. Les Crozes is true to Jean-Claude’s trademark style: approachable, affordable, and loaded with spicy garrigue, dusty earth, and ripe flavors of the South.–Anthony Lynch
