Tasting Notes

Le Clos des Cosses is a steep, hillside vineyard that was planted in 1999. If standing in the vineyards, you can see the city of Angers. The earth here is a mix of clay, chalk mixed with fossilized shells. The grapes are destemmed and are gently macerated and fermented with native yeast in cement. The wine is aged in stainless steel for 18 months, followed by approximately 6 months neutral barrel.

Cabernet Sauvignon

The result of an illicit affair a hundred-odd years ago between Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon today enjoys more worldwide popularity than both of its parents combined. It is the principal grape of Bordeaux, and as such has rightly earned its place among the greatest and most long-lived wines of the Old World; of course, it is also the most heralded grape of California,...
