A Grenache dominated blend at 70%, the Les Sablieres begins to feel a bit more “Northern Rhône” with an intense meaty, peppery nose; however, the lavender garrigue and raspberry that personify the Southern Rhône are there as well. There in spades, in fact, with a wonderful raspberry/pepper tension on the palate that supports and carries the richer fruit impact beautifully.

Flavors: Pepper, Raspberry

Cam Confidential
Domaine des Escaraveilles is located just north of Domaine Xavier in the village of Rasteau and their Les Sablieres bottling is a remarkably sophisticated wine for this price. Sourced from 40 to 50-year-old Grenache and 35 to 40-year-old Syrah vines planted in sandy clay and limestone soils over river rock, the vineyards are predominantly on the Rasteau estate with the rest coming from estate parcels just next door in Cairanne. Vinified separately in concrete tanks, Les Sablieres is a very intense and pure expression of the Rhône Valley.
