Castalides Icône

Castalides Icône AOC

Castalides Icône is our absolute top product. We harvest the grapes from locations that belonged to the newly established AOP Pézenas as in the case of the Castalides Édition. It is a cuvee from Syrah and Mourvèdre which exudes an overwhelming sensuality: Seductive scents of black berries, herbs and licorice; each sip is a pleasure one longs for again and again.
The 2011 vintage was – like the 2011 Castalides Édition – awarded 94 Parker points.
