Tasting 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.

    Quite the serious rosé relative to the under-$20 price point! Expansive aromas of watermelon, blood orange, lychee, and white cherry along with a bouquet of strawberry crème anglaise and rose petal. I really enjoyed the palate; it possessed quite a nice juiciness and elevated acidity that would be perfect as an aperitif or paired with food. The wine is rounder than initially perceived; accompanied along with some tannins that provide structure to the rosé. A nice bridge between the clean and crisp rosé wines of Côtes de Provence and the more structured offerings from Tavel
