La Cavale is located in Cucuronau, in the heart of the Luberon natural park. It is owned by Paul Dubrule (co-founder of the Accor group). One of the buildings on the estate was designed by the architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte; the vineyard spans 42 hectares. Eight different grape varieties are grown here. They have sought advice from Alain Graillot and are currently converting the vineyard to organics (certification expected in 2020). The domain has also striven to reduce its consumption of water as much as possible and produce their own solar energy. The domain produces three wines: Petite Cavale (rosé, white, red), La Cavale (red and white) and Grande Cavale (red), only produced in the best vintages.
About the cuvée
Originating from the vineyards planted on the slopes of this Luberon domain, this wine unfurls an aromatic bouquet marked by notes of ripe fruit, pepper, liquorice and flowers such as violet. The generous palate is marked by a well-integrated tannic structure which means it can be paired with refined southern dishes such as roast lamb with herbs.
