Réserve d'Excellence de la Jasse IGP Pays d'Oc Eleve en futs de Chene, 2017


Grape Variety

Cabernet Sauvignon

It was with great sadness that I learnt earlier this year of the death of Patrick Léon. I knew and worked with Patrick when he was Director at Château Mouton Rothschild in the 1990s. His experience with the Bordeaux first growth made him one of the world’s greatest experts on Cabernet Sauvignon and for over ten years he collaborated with Bruno at Domaine de la Jasse. The Réserve d’Excellence was born out of that collaboration. It is a full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with intense smoky aromas with black liquorice. On the palate it is concentrated and savoury with a fine texture leading to a rustic robust finish with lots of grip. It will benefit from some cellaring prior to drinking. A special selection of grapes underwent an extended maceration on skins. The wine was matured for twelve months in barrels with a particular high toast.
