For generations my family has been both wine growers and blacksmiths. My father Théophile Boisson was orphaned when he was only three years old, hence he was unable to train to as a blacksmith. Fortunately his mother helped foster a keen interest in grapes and wine, that led to him becoming a wine maker. The family nickname of “Caboche” derives from the old Provencal word for horseshoe nails, by which our estate is still known.
Tasted it last week at the winery, bought a few bottles to cellar. Prefer the vielle vignes, but this wine opened beautifully through dinner, with deep blackberry and pepper
Pretty good. Deep red, fruity and smooth at the beginning with a bit of a bite at the back.
