Winemaker Notes

The backbone of the Syrah and Carignan ally perfectly with the opulent Grenache, giving a medium-bodied wine of intense black fruit flavors, redolent of mountain herbs.

Approachable now, this wine will accompany fine meals oflamb, wild birds or game for years to come.

Blend: 50% Grenache, 27% Carignan, 23% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Tasted out of barrel, the deep purple colored 2016 Cotes du Roussillon (50% Grenache, 27% Carignan and 23% Syrah) offers a medium to full-bodied, ripe, sexy and bombastic style as well as outstanding notes of black and blue fruits, candied violets and spice. Drink this Old Word fruit bomb on release and over the following 4-5 years.
Range: 90-92

Domaine Cabirau, France
After 27 years in the wine business, Hand Picked Selections President Dan Kravitz took the plunge and purchased 13.5 acres of vineyard land in the Roussillon! The Domaine (taking its name "Cabirau" after the name of the vineyard itself) is in the village of Maury, which will receive its own sub-appellation for Côtes du Roussillon next year. It is planted entirely to Grenache, and is comprised of 12 almost-contiguous parcels on a high stony hill just below the famed old Cathar fortress of Queribus. 10 acres are planted with 20-25 years old vines, with vines in remaining acreage averaging more than 60 years in age.

Côtes du Roussillon Wine

Roussillon, France

View all products

Although it is a region predominantly recognized for fortified, vins doux naturels (a type of sweet wine), Roussillon is also ideal for the production of dry red, white and rose wines. To encompass all the dry wines from the surrounding region that are not the vins doux naturels of Banyuls, Maury and Rivesaltes, the appellation of Côtes du Roussillon was created in 1977. It covers the eastern half of the Pyrénées-Orientales (the eastern side of the Pyrenees Mountains) and lower lands of Roussillon. Côtes du Roussillon includes complex soils of schist, limestone, gneiss and granite and climatic conditions that support many grape varieties.

Côtes du Roussillon red wines are blends made from Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre and smaller amounts of Carignan, Cinsault and the lesser known, Lledoner Pelut. Rosé wines come from the same varieties, as well as may include Grenache Gris and Macabeo. White wines from Côtes du Roussillon are Grenache Blanc and Macabeo with small amounts of Marsanne, Roussanne and Rolle (aka Vermentino).

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
