The wine has a fine, light straw color with pale gold highlights and a refined, fresh nose on which distinctive floral combine with highly elegant notes of Sauvignon and a hint of toast. Sauvignon brings refinement and texture, while Semillon and Muscadelle give substance and the impression of roundness in the mouth. The long finish, expressive and harmonious on ripe fruit with a slightly mineral tinge, is entirely typical of the appellation.
The wine has a dense, deep red color shading to cherry at the edge and a seductively, nicely open nose with intense blackberry and cassis aromas and a slightly floral note reminiscent of violet. From a round and crisp attack with a fine structure of already well-rounded, creamy tannins, it develops an ample and expressive body of red berry fruit with a touch of something mineral. A seductive wine, its undoubted qualities display all the complexity and harmony of an exceptional vintage.
Cases de Pene is a tiny village in the Roussillon region of Southern France, just 30 miles north of the Spain. Ceded to France in the mid 17th century, the area is still known as "French Catalonia". We celebrate this heritage with the Catalan spelling of the ancient Chвteau and village Cooperative: "Penya".This medium-bodied blend is packed with flavor, offering aromas of plums & cherries with smoky notes. The palate yields red and black fruits, spices, a hint of bacon, and silky tannins.
