Château Jouclary Cuvée Tradition magnum, CabardèsRegular price €38.00
Make an impact with a magnum bottle (1.5 litres) of one of our favourite reds.
Irresistible Merlot-plummy fruit on the nose, delicate but rich, with the unique Cabardès character of both ‘Atlantic’ and ‘Mediterranean’ grapes. Fine tannins, supple texture and evocative flavours: pure pleasure.
One of the most popular wines at Bubble Brothers, in a double helping. The magnum size is ideal when you have a crowd: luxury and a sense of occasion, without overdoing it.
Ripe and juicy with good weight, moderate tannins and attractive notes of sweet blackberry, farmyard and thyme. Impressive length and complexity for a wine at this price.
Blake Creedon, Irish Examiner (January 2012) - 'This is another wine that won me over on the first sniff: its delicious sweet farmyard scent giving way to a well-weighted medium mouthful.'
Cabardès is a new-ish (estd. 1999) and fairly small red-and-rosé appellation in the hills north of Carcassonne. Its catchment area is on the climatic border between balmy Languedoc-Roussillon and the more inclement South-West, in the foothills of the Montagne Noir. This double identity is manifested in the grape varieties which make up the appellation's wines: Grenache and Syrah from the SE; Cabernets Franc and Sauvignon, and Merlot, from the SW/Bordeaux. The result is some genuinely unique wines, the majority of which are red.
Note: The Jouclary history goes back as far as 1530, when Guilhaume de Jouclary was the Consul of Carcassonne.
