Arnauld Daudier de Cassini - Bordeaux Rouge 2016 12.0% 750ml Bottleall good beer.
Wine: Bordeaux Rouge
Grape 100% Merlot
With no oak at all, this is the vin de soif of Claret! Full of bright plummy fruit, gentle tannins - enough grip to see your way through a Cassoulet.
Arnauld Cassini is one of the few producers leading a revolution. A revolution against the intervention heavy winemaking which has plagued one of the world's finest terroirs. With close friends Catherine and Pierre Breton, and taking inspiration from Didier Dagueaneau he is working a hands off approach on his vines, not even using any oak.
