2017 Roche Mazet Pays d'Oc Cabernet Sauvignon
Want French bargain wines? Go south my friend, home of absolute bangers like this Roche Mazet. Sourced from the Languedoc, this medium bodied, bargain friendly red is a delight - full of French flair for very few dollars.
How's it taste?
The Roche Mazet Cabernet Sauvignon displays an intense red hue with lovely ruby tints. It is aged in wood and has a silky, well-balanced structure. Aromas of blackcurrant, cherry and truffle on the nose mingle with hints of vanilla. Elegance is the keynote on the palate, with hints of red fruit and the characteristic Roche Mazet woodiness on the finish.
How was it made?
From the Pays d'Oc in southern France and aged in oak barrels
Who made it?
‘Roche’ is French for “rock” in reference to the clayey limestone soils of the Pays d'Oc region. ‘Mazet’ is a stone shelter for farmers, winegrowers and breeders, symbolising a person in the very middle of the vines. Founded in 1998 inside Société des Vins de France, Roche Mazet’s sole ambition is to commercialise a well-made and affordable Pays d’Oc wine. The brand was launched in 1998 with a small range of two varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon. The range grew, adding new grape varieties and different formats. Today, Roche Mazet offers 7 varieties as still wines and 3 sparkling.
