Ezo Les Vins de Cabanon, Biodynamic wine, sensational garage wine, simply superb freshness and life in a wine that moves and develops with the seasons as if the grapes were still dangling on the vine. This is how all wines should be, so pure and vital, so mouth watering and crunchy. Ezo is a blend of Syrah and Merlot. On first opening, the nose can be somewhat surprising.....or down right weird but give the wine a few minutes for it to breath deeply the life giving oxygen it needs to find itself again having been left dormant in the bottle and then it will explode with juicy berry fruits, scents of herbs and garrigue, sea salt and olives, breath it in and savour the wine, magnificent.
Having passed Le Casot des Mailloles to a newcomer, Alain has nonetheless kept a few vineyards with which he makes some of the classic wines he’s known for. Alain worked for 15 years in the Corbières region before founding Le Casot 15 years ago. For Les Vins du Cabanon, he has kept the vineyards in Trouillas and so will keep making Canta Mañana, Ezo, Tir à Blanc and Poudre d’Escampette.
