Didier Cazac, Déjanté 2021, Ardèche, France
We met Didier at a lovely wine fair in the Ardèche earlier this year, he stood out among a field of great winemakers, the wines brimming with energy and pure fruit.
Marsanne from twenty five year old vines planted over clay and limestone. Here the grapes were destemmed and macerated on the skins for eighteen days, before seven months of rest in large old casks. A brilliant amber in the glass, neat tannins frame refreshing notes of mandarin zest, sea salt and wild herbs, making for an incredibly invigorating wine.
