Cave de Cairanne La Reserve Cairanne Blanc

Decanter Trophy Best in Show, 97 Points

Guide Hachette 2019 - 1 Star

This Reserve Cairanne Blanc is extremely limited having done so well at the Decanter World Wine Awards. We have just 120 bottles.

Pale gold in colour. Strong flavours on the palate of peach and a little citrus. Good full body giving a lovely mouthfeel. Well integrated acidity, with a long clean finish. This is very good wine, on a par with our fantastic Tampesta Albarin which is a favourite of ours. Highly recommended but be quick as this won't hang around.

Text from Cave de Cairanne's website: The grapes are harvested by hand early in the morning, allowing the harvester to sort on stump. A direct pressing preserves a maxmum of fruit and finesse. The juices are then decanted by the cold 4-6 ° C, then ferment at low temperature 16-18 ° C to develop varietal and secondary aromas. A breeding on the lees brings roundness and volume to the wine. The color is very bright pale yellow. The nose of white flowers, acacia, linden develops with aeration notes of pear and apricot. the palate is full, while maintaining good acidity and a great deal of aromatic persistence.
