They have been practicing biodynamic viticulture and introduced the first bottling with the 2005 vintage.

    A blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre and 10% Carignan.

    Fresh Aromas of red and black fruit, supple and silky tannins, medium bodied with great finesse on the finish.

    Mas du Goudareau
    Mas du Goudareau is a new estate build by Helene and Daniel Boulle, the owners of Domaine des Aphillanthes. The cellar is situated in Travaillan but the vines are planted on the garrigues (scrubland) of Serignan next to Cairanne. Since 1999, Helene and Daniel have devoted themselves to attaining utmost purity in their wines. They have been practicing biodynamic viticulture and introduced the first bottling with the 2005 vintage. Prior to this, the production was sold to various negociants seeking certified organic grapes. The vineyards are planted with 14 ha of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan and Cinsault which are between 35 and 70 years old. The soil is comprised of clay and limestone and covered with pebbles. No insecticides, no chemical fertilizers or weeding are employeed and the grapes are all hand harvested. Helene and Daniel are committed tremendously to this new project and the result is impressive- all the wines are exceptional.

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    View all wine

    A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon is sometimes referred to as the “king” of red grapes. It can be somewhat unapproachable early in its youth but has the potential to age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more at its best. Small berries and tough skins provide its trademark firm tannic grip, while high acidity helps to keep the wine fresh for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region (and in St-Emillion and Pomerol, where it plays a supporting role to Merlot). The top Médoc producers use Cabernet Sauvignon for their wine’s backbone, blending it with Merlot and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot. On its own, Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and sought-after “cult” wines.

    In the Glass

    High in color, tannin, and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice, and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

    Perfect Pairings

    Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb, and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

    Sommelier Secrets

    Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
