Situated in the heart of the Languedoc countryside due south of the town of Carcassonne, we find the family run Domaine de Cassagnau. A doctor by profession, owner Jacques Abet 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 fresh, delicate rosé is a blend of Cabernets Franc and Sauvignon and Malbec and is full of crisp citrus and floral notes, with a hint of spice on the palate.

Buy this if...you're a sucker for French Rosé.

Light, floral, citrusy and very moreish - close your eyes and transport yourself to the Med!

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.

Tom Cannavan Reviews

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"A Languedoc blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with Cabernet Franc and Malbec, this has a pretty and pale peachy-pink colour and an up-front, fruity personality. Bursting with ripe red cherries and floral nuances, the palate is perhaps just – just – off-dry, a hint of sweetness offsetting the dry red berries and clear acidity, with a lightly creamy texture, very nice indeed"

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.

An Outstanding Rose

Our first Rose from our mixed case collection and what a first it proved to be. Once again heralding from the Languedoc, around Carcassonne, it's a lovely blend which includes Cabs Sauvignon and Franc along with, (and here's a surprise), Merlot! The result is a fabulously drinkable rose.

Pea And Goats' Cheese Risotto

Risottos pair well with both reds whites and rosé so consider the other ingredients when choosing a wine match - the combination of sweet peas and salty goats cheese call for vibrant white or rosé with lots of fruit flavour. Try a Pays d'Oc number like the Le Rosé de Cassagnau,

Barbequed Garlic and Herb Mushrooms

When you think barbecue, it doesn't have to be just meat. This simple and tasty vegan recipe takes delicious large mushrooms (Portobello would be ideal), add some tasty herbs, and that smoky taste that everyone loves. This recipe pairs really well with Le Rosé de Cassagnau form Pays d'Oc.
