Situated in the heart of the Languedoc countryside, we find the family-run Domaine de Cassagnau, run by Jacques Abet. A doctor by profession, Jacques inherited the estate from his mother and continues the family business with wife Collette and a large extended family who all pitch in at harvest time! This classic Languedoc red is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Merlot, with plenty of ripe black berry fruit and a fresh, peppery finish with notes of herbs and spice.

Buy this if...you love the flavours of Southern France.

Another Languedoc red that hits the spot - balanced and ripe with a hint of Southern French herbs.

The Producer

Family-owned Domaine de Cassagnau is situated in the heart of the Languedoc region, due south of Carcasonne. The success of the estate has very much relied on the women of the family, with Berthe Abet in charge of the domaine for six decades and through two world wars. A doctor by profession, Jacques inherited the estate from his mother, Berthe's daughter Jacqueline, and continues the family business with wife Collette.

The Winemaker

Owner Jacques Abet manages to combine his doctor's profession with that of running a wine estate and swaps white coat for tractor whenever the vines call. He also oversees the winemaking process and his renovation of the estate allowed him to carefully choose specific grape varieties for the varied vineyard plots on the estate.

The Region

The estate produces red, white and rose styles within the Limoux area in the foothills of the Pyrenees and the warm, sunny Mediterranean climate also benefits from the fresher Atlantic breezes that work their way inland. The choice of grapes varieties is a meeting of these dual elements, with Syrah and Grenache representing the Languedoc and Cabernet and Merlot on the Atlantic side.

Provençal Duck

Try this herby roast duck recipe with bright, very fruity reds with high acidity to cut through the fattiness of the dish. Try Southern French or Northern Italian reds for a taste sensation.

Mexican Pizza

Arriba! Something a little spicy to pair with your wine – a light spicy red will go perfectly. Try a Grenache/Syrah based blend for starters.

Duck Glazed with Plum & Soy

A Chinese-inspired duck dish with both fruity and savoury elements needs a smooth, fruity red - try unoaked styles with fresh flavours.
