- ABV 15.5%
- Closure: Cork
Produced from a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Carignan this saturated pitch black coloured Cairanne offers up intoxicating aromas of black raspberry and black cherry infused with incense followed by liquorice, fresh herbs, subtle scorched earth and pepper. Dense, super rich and lavish, lush black cherry and black raspberry fruits are backed by ripe chewy tannins that give the wine a robust feel. Liquorice, dried herb, scorched earth, infusions of incense and blackpepper elements sit beneath. Magnificent concentration and power with a very long opulent blackpepper laced aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
The flagship cuvée is the 2017 Cairanne La Bousquette, a mix of 80% Grenache and 20% Carignan that was destemmed and brought up in tank. Cassis, violets, lavender, peppery spice, and minerality notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, beautifully polished Cairanne that has silky tannin, rocking purity of fruit, and a great finish. It’s a total gem in the vintage that readers should snatch up.
The top cuvée at Domaine Roche is the 2017 Cairanne la Bousquette, a tank-aged blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Carignan said to come from the oldest vines in the appellation. Cola, blackberries and clove all come together seamlessly in this full-bodied, concentrated and velvety wine that lingers on the finish. Drink 2019-2026.
