What the Critics say
This small terroir located in the lower part of the La Tourtine vineyard benefits from specific winegrowing conditions: sheltered from the Mistral wind by the headland of Le Castellet , a gentle breeze always blows up its terraced slopes while the south-south-westerly exposition ensures maximum sunshine. These exceptional conditions allow the Mourvedre (95% of the terroir’s production) to reach its ideal ripeness. The low yield makes the Cabassaou a rare cuvée. Robust and powerful with dense tannins, it often surprises those lucky enough to taste it: Cabassaou is an exemplary wine.
