Our first order of the 2018 Begude Cadet de la Begude Rouge has arrived. With it's rich palate and spicy undertones this wine could easily be mistaken for a Bordeaux on both the nose and pallet. It is very different from the 100 percent Mourvèdre selections we normally offer from the Tari family. The Bordeaux style is of no surprise, the Tari family's other estate is Chateau Giscours in Margaux a Bordeaux 3rd growth.
This Mourvèdre, Grenache, and Cinsault blend was made to be more approachable at a young age, but still hold the structure of the more tannic wines offered by this estate. The Tari families' Bordeaux background displays in ever aspect of this wine, but is most noticeable in the black fruit and tannin structure found on the finish.
This wine starts with a stalky character that develops into a richer, juicy black fruitiness. Produced from organically grown grapes, the wine is packed with berry flavors, layered with acidity and well structured. Drink from late 2020. - Roger VOSS"
