A mouthfilling, richly spiced red with an illustrious, medal winning history, Cabalié needs no ceremony. Just large glasses for serving! It’s a Grenache charged red from very old Roussillon vines, so has gorgeous, spicy, berry fruit in abundance.
"Excellent, smooth wine – I don’t normally drink red but make an exception with this. 5-Stars"
Online Review For the 2017 vintage
Take a minute to read online reviews for Cabalié. This one is typical: “When my time comes to shuffle off this mortal coil, this is the wine I want in that final glass. It is simply, utterly, indescribably fantastic.” Its secret? It’s crafted by the internationally acclaimed Hervé Sabardeil in the ancient vineyard region of Roussillon. Using largely Grenache, with additions of herb scented Syrah and scented Carignan, Cabalié has impressive concentration. That’s due to the maturity of the vines, which include some of France’s oldest Grenache. The tiny berries they produce give Cabalié extraordinarily rich, ripe flavours. Boasting 12 medals in five vintages, this now legendary wine is in its element with a slow braised beef casserole.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
