Description

Clos des Paulilles is based in a small pretty Mediterranean seaside village just north of the Franco-Spanish border. The vineyard was established in 1800 and acquired by Cazes in 2012. Collioure is considered to have some of the finest wines in the south of France, an unsurprising fact when you realise that its yields are some of the lowest in France. The soils are a schist, on very steep terraces and rolling hills, totalling 90 hectares. The estate works with biodynamic viticulture, aiming for natural balance through biodiversity and minimal intervention.

TASTING NOTES

A very dark ruby-red in colour. Heady aromas of cherries, raisins and stewed red fruits with a touch of spice. On the palate sweet, strong and tart with a long finish redolent with further red fruit flavours of raspberries and plums.

FOOD PAIRING

It marries well with cheese (much like Port), chocolate and even with classic French savoury dishes such as rabbit, hare or venison braised with a chocolate sauce.
