The Languedoc-Roussillon produces fantastic, modern-style wines at exceptional prices, and Domaine de Saissac Cabernet Sauvignon is no exception. A long-time favourite of Corney & Barrow, Domaine de Saissac is a small wine estate on the banks of the historic Canal du Midi. Concentrated and balanced with delicate, cedar-spice notes.
“This fine, juicy, well-priced Cabernet Sauvignon shows just what the Languedoc-Roussillon is capable of.”
Celliers Jean d’Alibert:
This cooperative group unites several tiny village cooperative wineries and over 20 small domaines and chateaux covering the high quality Haut-Minervois (‘Upper Minervois’) wine-producing area. Their vineyards – spanning 7000 hectares – comprise some of the most interesting and varied ‘terroirs’ of the region: cool, light-reflective schistous terraces; breezy limestone hillsides; and the sandy-soils of old pre-phylloxeric vineyards vines bordering the Canal du Midi. Such diversity gives access to grapes of many varieties, styles and qualities, bringing with it a dazzling and unrivalled array of different styles and qualities of wine, yet all displaying the winery’s hallmark richness and appetising freshness.
