Domaine Les Grands Bois Cairanne Maximilien 2020


This is just so seductive and presents a pretty compelling 'Buy Me' message.

This Cairanne comes from a blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. Typical of Cairanne, it is a powerful wine with notes of red fruits and spices. Aged in oak barrels for 9 months for a third of the volume, we find a sweetness like nowhere else in our wines.

It was in Sainte-Cécile, in 1920, that the estate was created by Albert Farjon. Agricultural worker, but above all passionate about vines and wine, he created, thanks to his work and his will, a wine estate which has today acquired its letters of nobility. André and Robert (his two sons) took over the reins thus perpetuating the family tradition and ensuring the longevity of the estate. The vines of the Les Grands Bois estate extend over 46 hectares spread over 7 municipalities: Sainte-Cécile-les-Vignes, Lagarde-Paréol, Suze la Rousse, Tulette, Cairanne, Rasteau, and Travaillan. The vines are planted on plots located mostly on plateaus 130 meters above sea level.

"A concentrated wine with a beautiful texture that offers freshness and purity" Jeb Dunnuck
As says, Jeb Dunnuck (one of the greatest specialist critics of the Rhone Valley), "This Maximilien wine is another superb wine by the Grands Bois Domaine". Given the delicacy and flexibility on the palate of this explosion of fruit, there is no chance of contradiction. This vintage is very energetic and vibrant, it will delight your taste buds. A Cairanne of great class, which can only improve with a few years in the cellar, to be discovered now!
