K&L Notes

Domaine de Cabasse was a highly regarded producer making wines from the Rhone villages of Sablet, Gigondas and Seguret. The family decided to sell their property in 2012 but there was one lone family member who didn't want to see it go. Scraping together enough money, Nicolas Haeni was able to buy just the Seguret vineyard and make that the focus of his new project, "Malmont." This remarkable site is very difficult to farm and the vineyard itself is named Malmont meaning "bad mountain." When it was developed as a site under Cabasse's ownership, they used a very special Spanish method for terracing the vineyard, a practice more common in Priorat. These 4 hectares are planted to a mix of Grenache and Syrah and a small amount of Roussanne. Under his own label, Nicolas' first vintage was 2013 and we are extremely pleased to exclusively have his wines in California.

    A blend of 75% Grenache and 25% Syrah with about 70% of the juice direct-pressed and the remaining saignée (free run). It is a richer-styled rosé that is packed with strawberry flavors and subtle minerality. At once crisp with acidity and full bodied, this is one of the most serious rosés from the Rhône Valley I have tasted. It is unusual to see a Villages-Séguret rosé, but such is the purity that this site offers. Nicolas doesn’t want to declassify any of the fruit or supplement it with fruit from other villages.
