Mighty Cabalié is one of our best loved ‘BIG reds’ and this latest old vine version has even more of a swagger. Seriously intense Carignan gives a boost of inky dark fruit to soft, spicy Grenache in this stonking, velvety, southern French red.

Parker-rated winemaker Hervé Sabardeil has been making this big, ripe Catalan red, the original Cabalié, for 15 years now. He added the old vine edition in 2012, originally as a one off, but it was so popular we insisted he did it again. And again! Hervé sources the grapes from the same slate soils of Maury in the Roussillon, a town where the winemaking heritage dates back to the 2nd century BC. The vines are 60 to 100 years old, so yields are minute – around half of that for a fancy claret. This really adds to the power and intensity of the wine. Made from Grenache with a large portion of spicy black fruit Carignan, this is a full flavoured red, more intense than the original. It’s ideal with garlic roasted lamb, rich stews or hard cheese.
