6x Chateau Cabezac 'Le Petit Arthur' 2011
One of the last estates in Minervois to remain a dedicated small producer, Chateau Cabezac is a firm favourite with London's top sommeliers. Note the list of Michelin-starred restaurants currently offering their wines: Le Gavroche, Hélène Darroze at the Connaught, and The Square to name but a few.
'Le Petit Arthur', named after the baby son of the producer, is a particularly special bottle, chosen for its full bodied depth, supporting the stronger flavours of gamey meats such as venison or wild rabbit, yet retaining the ability not to overpower the subtleties of fruit or herbal notes in certain dishes.
Le Petit Arthur 2011 won a bronze medal in the 2015 Decanter World Wine Awards.
A classic balance, Le Petit Arthur 2011 makes use of the well-known quadrant of grapes Mourvèdre, Syrah, Grenache Noir and Carignan, which gives it the roundness, mellow tannins and hint of ripe fruit which can compare to a big Bordeaux or superior Spanish red. It is currently paired with the mint rubbed lamb dish on the Gauthier Soho summer menu, and we are also tempted to suggest it with strong cheeses.
Le Petit Arthur 2011 can be drunk or can be lay down for four to five years and continue to improve.
