Domaine de Baccari – Première de Baccari Rouge 2015
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.
The elegance of the Cabernet Franc elevated by Syrah. Complex, long on the palate, with flavours of blackcurrant, spices and violet refreshed by a mineral hint. Rich and supple tannins. Great ageing potential.
