Domaine de Baccari Premiere Rouge 2015

Mekenes, Morocco | Cabernet Franc, Syrah | 14.5% ABV | Contains Sulphites | 75cl
RRP: £39.99

Hailing from the region of Meknes, the heart of Morocco’s winegrowing region since before the Roman Empire, Domaine de Baccari is nestled on the foothills of the Atlas mountain range at an altitude of 650m. Their terrain is made up of fine, red clay and soft limestone undersoil, which combined with a sunny and slightly cooler climate, make it ideal for growing wine with a strong identity. The domaine produces red and rosé wines from Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Franc, in particular, has thrived in the region, forming the backbone of Baccari’s balanced, delicate, fresh and complex wines. The estate has been owned by the same family for generations. They have been collaborating with renown oenologist, Stephane Derenoncourt and his team, since the 2013 vintage. 

Tasting Notes: 

‘A rich, brambly, warm nose, with some cream and jam, too,’ began team leader Hamish Anderson, who described this as having ‘a rich style, under which lies brooding iron, meat and spice notes – a full and sweet wine with earthiness, and some grip on the finish’.

The Perfect Serve: Serve in a large red wine glass, and let breathe for 30minutes-1hour if you can wait that long!
