Fruity, powerful, and well-structured
Michel Cazevieille and Sébastien Roubichou have continually nurtured their land in their efforts to go further and do better. At an altitude of 180 metres and with a south-western exposure sheltered from the wind, the vines draw strength from the soil to offer us this wine which is truly at its apogée.
Deep, dense red colour. Bouquet of ripe red and black berries (redcurrant jelly), eucalyptus and garrigue (thyme, rosemary). Fruity, powerful and well-structured on the palate. A long and spicy finish.
To be enjoyed among connoisseurs, primarily with grilled meat. Serve at room temperature 17°C. Cellaring potential: 10 years.
Soil composed of fossil sandstone and limestone-clay in the Chaînon de Saint-Chinian terroir. Altitude: 180 metres. Mediterranean climate with continental influences, offering a wine which is exceptional in its balance and spicy nature.
“Showing even better than last year, the 2013 Saint Chinian Apogee has lots of cassis and currant fruit as well as classy notes of smoked herbs, graphite and licorice. The oak it showed last year has integrated nicely, it has medium to full-bodied richness, terrific purity and a ripe, upfront, sexy style that’s ideal for drinking over the coming 5-7 years.” – 90 points, Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate
