Tête de Cuvée Rouge 'Black Label', Domaine de la Jasse, Languedoc 2019
La Jasse's premium cuvée is a Cabernet Sauvignon parcel selection, aged for 12 months in 220l barriques, adding aromas of woodsmoke and spice to the pronounced blackcurrant and plum fruit. Reminiscent perhaps of a loftier-priced claret, with profound black fruits, herbs, cedar and sweet spice. A wine of real posture and presence , with fabulously ripe fruits and just the right amount of freshness with finely knit tannins and a harmonious, rounded finish. Drink to 2028.
