Cuvée Classique 2012 AOC Languedoc - Domaine d'Aigues Belles


Cuvée Classique is the most typical Languedoc wine from the Domaine, although it is surprisingly smooth, remaining medium-bodied. Given the exclusive use of local grapes and the ideal terroir, it benefits from the Languedoc appellation. It shows beautiful aromas of ripe black fruit, forest and spices, with a long finish. Tannins are supple, elegant and spicy. Very well made with nice flavours and structure: We love this wine, perfectly ready to drink right now after 5 years in the bottle!

Bettane + Desseauve

16.5/20 "Cuvée made of the usual Languedoc tryptic Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. It is a fresh wine, very balanced with yummy flavours of black fruit and spices. We love drinking it." (previous vintage)

Gault & Millau

15/20 "It is a complete wine with elegant flavours, subtle tannins, a perfect combination between fruit, earth and olives. The great harmony." (Previous vintage)
