Take a minute to read online reviews for Cabalié. This one is typical: "When my time comes to shuffle off this mortal coil, this is the wine I want in that final glass. It is simply, utterly, indescribably fantastic." Its secret? It's crafted by Parker praised winemaker Hervé Sabardeil in Maury, a southern French town with a 2,000 year old wine heritage. Taste Cabalié and you'd think it was bolstered with a splash of the local fortified vin doux naturel. But in fact its intensity comes from some of the oldest Grenache vines in France. Their stunningly concentrated grapes give Cabalié extraordinarily ripe, deep red berry flavours. Boasting 12 medals in five vintages, this legendary wine is in its element with a slow braised beef casserole.
