Intro to Chateau de Cabidos Cuvee St Clement Petit Manseng –
Domaine du Chateau de Cabidos Petit Manseng Doux is the only known 100% Petit Manseng dessert wine. From a family producer in the foothills of the Pyrenees. A fresh light style with aromas of ripe fruit and honey. Complex on the pallet with candied fruit and fresh acidity on the finish.
Full tasting note and wine making –
The tradition of making wine at Château de Cabidos was successfully relaunched in the early 90s having been abandoned for over a century. Today, twenty acres are devoted to several varieties of vines. Most of the vineyard is devoted to the high-quality Pyrenean white grape, Petit Manseng. It makes both sweet and dry wines which are much appreciated by connoisseurs. Domaine de Cabidos can be found in an idyllic corner of the PyrénéesAtlantiques with the best vines planted on the south facing slopes. The official title for the wines is Vin de Pays du Comté Tolosan (today referred to as Indication Géographique Protégée Comté Tolosan). Cabidos is committed to careful, sustainable viticulture. In the winery, modern technology combines with ageless traditions to create something spectacular without losing its history. Today it is known for the excellence of its wines and is among the best in South-West France.
The producer –
Founded in 1995, Calmel & Joseph is a maison de négoce specializing in Languedoc-Roussillon wines from private wineries from across the region. Over the years, they have built close personal relationships with a large number of growers from all appellations. Convinced of the extraordinary potential of this region, oenologist, Laurent Calmel, and Jerome Joseph work together on the vinification, blending and ageing of wines with the common purpose of demonstrating the little known yet unique quality of these Mediterranean terroirs.
Free of all certification labels, our viticultural and vinification practices are natural and environmentally friendly. The Joseph & Calmel range comes from a rigorous selection of vineyards, with a particular focus on very cool terroirs (often on the very edge of wine growing areas). The grapes are picked (by hand) when they are perfectly ripe. We prefer gentle vinification rather than aggressive extraction. Careful blending harmonizes the balances of the local varieties. Our wines are patiently and naturally aged until they undergo gentle bottling which preserves the original balances and aromas. These wines are analyzed by an independent laboratory to detect active agents: full analyses of the wines are available on this website.
At Calmel & Joseph, they are committed to the concept of freshness, finesse and elegance in our wines. Being located in a Mediterranean and therefore hot region, they look for terroirs which are as cool as possible, often found at the edge of wine growing areas in the mountain foothills. Once we have decided on the terroir, they look for vineyard plots which are worked as naturally as possible, because they believe that it is from these vineyards that wines with the greatest complexity, but above all the strongest personality, are produced. Once their criteria are met, they meet the wine grower and offer him/her a partnership on the selected plots.
