We have dedicated this wine to the wild boar – highly respected by the huntsmen of Gascony and often found living in the woods around Domaine de Sédouprat. Nick recalls, “On a frosty morning in the vineyard last winter I heard the sound of running and they came racing past me on both sides; boars, sows and their offspring – a magnificent scene that I will never forget”.
SANGLIER (Red), MERLOT CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2014 - 14%
Super ripe grapes harvested in late October.
With only 3 months in oak the concentration is on the fruit characters rather than wood. Aromas and flavours leap out - very concentrated berry fruit, really ripe plums, liquourice and eucalyptus.
The fruit acid is perfect, lifting the fruit intensity to that of summer pudding and the extra ripeness has resulted in higher natural glycerol levels that give the palate a full and rounded viscosity.
