From the very upper reaches of the Loire River, come the delicious, yet mostly unknown, red wines of the Cote Roannaise. Once a major supplier of wine to Paris and the Royal Court, the wine-producing region has shrunk to a mere 250 acres producing 55,000 cases of wine a year. The Gamay grape flourishes on these steep, granite slopes. Many of the vineyards are terraced and the best sites have a southeastern exposure, with all harvesting done by hand. Beaujolais is just under 50 miles away, but a more different expression of the Gamay grape could not be found. Part of this difference is surely due to the fact that a different clone is used, the Gamay Romain, as well as the fact that the vinification is more traditional and less manipulated than at its famous neighbor.After many years at the helm, Maurice Lutz sold the property to his assistant of 15 years, Eric Villeneuve, in 2007. The wines are still rich and flavorful with that hint of damp earth and truffles that the best French country wines exhibit. These hand-crafted wines are created from 7 hectares of vineyards with a granite and sand sub-soil and excellent draining characteristics. The southeast exposition favors the vine and grape maturity. The average age of the vines is 55 years. The viticulture is lutte raisonne9e with low yields and the space between the vine rows is plowed to aerate and allow grass to grow between the rows. The grapes are manually harvested.

The Cabernet Sauvignon 1882 is round and consistent with a velvety palate and a sense of "completeness" from the well-developed linear tannins. Highly aromatic and immediately expressive, you'll find an alluring fragrance of plums, currants, dried cherries, cocoa, and violets followed by smooth flavors of red fruits with a hint of almond. The wine's complexity is made even more intriguing as the wine finishes with the subtle sweetness if white chocolate. If you choose to enjoy this vintage in its youth, we recommend decanting for one hour before serving, otherwise our 1882 Cabernet Sauvignon will continue to evolve and drink best in 5 to 10 years.
Product DescriptionCozy up with an approachable red that's anything but boring. This 14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon boasts comforting aromas of rich coffee and juicy dark cherry, emboldened by a tantalizing undercurrent of spicy oak.
