In 1921, Maison Cazes purchased the Mas Joffre in Rivesaltes, the former home of Marshal Joffre. Made from vines that belonged to this Catalan hero, the "Canon du Maréchal" is a range of "relaxing" wines that are fruity, soft, crisp and go elegantly and easily with any meal.
Winemaking: 2 different ways of winemaking.
- Carbonic maceration at high temperature for part of the grapes.
- Others followed a short maceration before the alcoholic fermentation which is done at low temperature. After pressing, the fermentation process is completed at 20°C.
Ageing: Bottled 6 months after the harvest and stored in air-conditioned cellars.
Tasting : Serve 14°C to keep all the freshness of the aromas. On the palate, red fruit flavors(redcurrant, raspberry, cherry) with spicy notes. It is a round and velvety wine.
A historic and family estate in the heart of Rivesaltes since 1895. A terroir in the Agly Valley, in the foothills of the Corbières. Clay-limestone with some schistose materials as well as siliceous pebble. Soil perfectly suited for the production of high quality wines.
