L'Apogee AOP Saint Chinian 2016

L'Apogee AOP Saint Chinian 2016

L'Apogee 2016 from Saint Chinian is an exceptional wine that embodies the essence of its terroir. Crafted by Michel Cazevieille and Sebastien Roubichou, who have continuously nurtured their land, this wine is a testament to their commitment to excellence. The vineyard, situated at an altitude of 180 meters with a southwestern exposure sheltered from the wind, provides the ideal conditions for the vines to thrive and produce grapes of exceptional quality.

This wine is a blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Mourvedre, a combination that showcases the best characteristics of both varietals. The Syrah contributes its bold and intense flavors, adding layers of dark fruits and a touch of black pepper. On the other hand, the Mourvedre brings a distinct richness and complexity, with notes of blackberries, earthiness, and dried herbs.

As you take your first sip, L'Apogee 2016 reveals its true character. The wine boasts a rich and full-bodied texture, with velvety tannins that coat the mouth. Flavors of blackcurrants and plums take center stage, accompanied by hints of cedar and tobacco, which add layers of depth and sophistication. The wine's well-integrated oak contributes a touch of vanilla and spice, enhancing the overall complexity.

The finish of L'Apogee 2016 is long and satisfying, leaving a lasting impression. The fruit flavors linger on the palate, while a subtle mineral undertone provides a refreshing and elegant touch. This wine showcases impeccable balance, with its vibrant acidity perfectly complementing its ripe fruit flavors. With its firm structure and potential for aging, L'Apogee 2016 promises to evolve gracefully over the years, rewarding those who choose to cellar it. Michel Cazevieille and Sebastien Roubichou's dedication to their land and the meticulous craftsmanship behind this wine truly bring it to its apogee.
