2019 Domaine Roche Cairanne

SKU #1543849 91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2019 Cairanne is brilliant stuff, and I'd certainly be happy to drink a bottle. Lots of black raspberry and jammy blueberries as well as candied orange, flowers, and peppery herbs give way to a medium to full-bodied, rounded, sexy Cairanne with beautiful purity as well as length. It's going to drink nicely right out of the gate yet keep for 7-8 years. Inner quote mark (3/2021)

K&L Notes

Romain Roche took over the family property from his father Marcel in 2009. Romain is known for expressing the typicity of Cairanne and has become one of the key producers synonymous with the region. The Cairanne is a blend of Grenache (planted in the 1950s and 60s), Syrah (planted in the '70s) and Carignan (planted in the '50s). The wine is fermented in concrete tanks and aged in a mix of concrete tanks and oak barrels. We are delighted to add him to our family of Direct Imports this past year. The 2019 is 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah. The Grenache is aged in concrete tanks for 8 to 10 months; the Syrah is aged in barrels and demi-muids for the same.

I think that this wine out performs its price point. It is full bodied and complex with round focused and delicious flavors . On the dry side, it will be best with food.

The star of the show Roche portfolio is the Cairanne. All from older vines Grenache and Syrah, this is brought up in a mix of concrete tank and large oak barrels. Sliding from the redder fruited Cotes-du-Rhone, the Cairanne expresses deeper black fruit flavors alongside savory herbal and spice notes. This transcends its price point and imposes a lot of wine for very little money. This should evolve beautifully for several years.
