Coteaux de l'Ardèche: Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

This straight Cabernet Sauvignon from the Ardèche is one of our most popular red wines and exhibits plenty of varietal character. With bright blackcurrant aromas and a plummy, mid-weight palate with a fresh acidity, it has a terrific 'rapport qualité prix' and would give many a Petit Château Claret a good run for its money.

Tasting Notes
This medium-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, from the exemplary Vignerons Ardéchois 'co-opérative' in Ruoms, is another of their superb single varietal bottlings that are carefully crafted and reasonably priced. Showing classic cassis aromas and a palate of red-berry fruit with notes of mint, it is underpinned by ripe tannins.

Vignerons Ardéchois

The Vignerons Ardéchois Cave Co-opérative (also known as U.V.I.C.A - Union des Vignerons des Coteaux de l'Ardèche) has its roots in the late 1960s when the Presidents of 7 major Cave Co-opératives agreed a unified policy of modernisation, re-planting and marketing. Based in the town of Ruoms, 20 kilometres south of Aubenas this forward-thinking, modernist collective has done much to revive the fortunes of this ancient vine-area, which dates back to Roman times. Today the Vignerons Ardéchois co-operative represents some 2000 grape growers from 21 different smaller co-operatives. U.V.I.C.A is a terrific source of keenly-priced, well made single variety wines and accessible, fruit-driven blends.
