So what do Romans, the French King Charles Le Chauve, and the Rigal Roquefort Cheese Company all have in common? They've each owned and made wine at this venerable estate!
Yes, I am writing about a 10-dollar Cab (10-bucks for insiders, that is); however, this is a 10-dollar Cab chock full of history and pedigree. It's actually the entry-level wine of Château du Grand Caumont, a well-regarded benchmark producer in the commune of Lézignan Corbières.
Corbières and the Languedoc, in general, produce a boatload of terrific, high-quality, value-driven wines. The sad fact is that most of these gems never leave France and only occasionally make it out to the E.U. Happily, that's been changing over the last few years, and we're finally able to get some of these best-buy gems into our glasses Stateside.
When we first tasted this last week, we couldn't believe the price, and we asked our rep to double-check to make sure there wasn't an error.
In your glass, you'll love how pleasingly smooth this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon feels on the palate. Earthy aromas and briary red fruits lead to the supple palate of black raspberry, black cherry, and a whisper of cassis. There's a lovely balance of fruit and earth that finishes perfectly clean with just a hint of tobacco and spice.
Pair this with everything from burgers to grilled chops, roasted bird, and even pasta-pizza.
These true ten-dollar gems are getting more and more difficult to find, so back up the truck for this one!
