2012 Domaine Cabirau, Rhône Blend, Côtes du Roussillon

Last year we introduced you to this winery and the big brother to the wine being offered today. Well they have done it again… a modern version of the classic Côtes du Roussillon, that impressed us with its’ quality and value!

Our Impressions:
The 2012 Côtes du Roussillon, "Malgré les Fonctionnaires" which could be translated into English as "Let's get rid of Red Tape" is a captivating blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Carignan

It delivers layer upon layer of black raspberries with hints of various middle eastern spices, striking minerality that is most likely due to the black schist soils the vines were grown in. Ground herbs and violets highlight the mid palate and gives way to a full-bodied, beautiful profile on the palate.

Most C.D.R.’s tend to be a bit rustic; however this effort is both juicy and fresh, yet also with solid mid-palate depth and good overall richness, it finishes with savory tannins and persistent length.

Wine Advocate, David Schildknecht, 92 Pts, Jan. 2014:
"A blend of Grenache with around 20% Syrah and 10% Carignan, the Cabirau 2012 Côtes du Roussillon Malgré les Fonctionnaires delivers lusciously ripe black raspberry laced with sage, horehound and smoky black tea, and garlanded with heliotrope. As usual with this cuvee, there is a brightness and seed-crunching “ping” that convey energy and invigoration to an infectiously juicy finish. Here is a stupendous value that projects distinctive Roussillon virtues including downright dynamic interactivity. I suspect that it will show well for the better part of the decade if not beyond. Importer-proprietor Dan Kravitz has once again scored terrific success – and you will score astonishing values! – with his latest Domaine Cabirau bottlings, vinified and raised under the auspices of Nicolas Burger at the Tautavel Vingrau coop of which Kravitz is also a member. He notes that even with what he considered aggressive crop-dropping, yields on his vines were 37 hectoliters per hectare in 2011, making this far-and-away his most (indeed, first) generous vintage to date. Needless to say, though – as witness my notes and scores – Kravitz and his vines rose to the challenges of 2010 and 2012 as well!"
