What a story! What a wine! We all love quality Châteauneuf du Pape but it comes at a price. That’s why this ‘next door’ red is such a canny buy. Exceptional richness and intensity of herby blackberry fruit thanks to ancient vines and superb terroir.
"Loved it. A top Côtes du Rhône. Really smooth and very easy to drink"
Online Review For the 2017 vintage
Domaine Les Cassanets is something of a coup for us. Launched to great acclaim with the medal winning 2009, it has won a Gold medal nearly every vintage since. Labelled humble Côtes du Rhône, the domaine is in fact within Châteauneuf du Pape – but century old politics prevent it from being upgraded. The domaine’s famous Châteauneuf neighbours are Châteaux de Beaucastel and Rayas, and 100 Parker point Clos du Caillou. Same grapes, same terroir – same style of wine. And winemaker Thierry Ferlay lavishes the same attention on Cassanets as on his award winning Châteauneuf. From a century old family estate, it is big, rich and spicy – the only giveaway that this isn’t Châteauneuf is the price. Decant and serve with roast lamb, game or cassoulet.
