Famille Arbeau Radical Cassoulet
Grapes: Braucol, Côt
Famille Arbeau are based in Fronton, a tiny but fascinating appellation on the river Tarn around 30 miles north of Toulouse. The Arbeau's winemaking roots in the area date back to 1878, and the domaine is now run by brother and sister Anne and Gérard Arbeau who have converted to organics in order to better express the unique terroir and grape varieties of Fronton.
Radical Cassoulet is a blend of Braucol and Côt (Malbec). An intense iron-like minerality on the nose with herbal notes of green pepper and fennel. Generous and fruity on the palate with black and redcurrants, liquorice and a firm structure.
