Description

The seducing name of “Le Plaisir” is far from marketing propaganda. It is actually the name of a house purchased in 1712 by Thomas Gasparin, the Pope’s consul in Cairanne. Thanks to its legacy, the property is the only one that is allowed to carry the “Chateau” denomination in Cairanne.
The estate was taken over in 2009 by Lydie and Pascal Franczack who bring all their “savoir-faire” to this phenomenal terroir. Chateau Le Plaisir features 70 acres of vines split over the Cairanne, Plan de Dieu and Cotes-du-Rhone Villages appelations.

Nose

This wine presents smoky cherry and black raspberry aromas, with olive, allspice and licorice, and a delightful floral quality in the background.

Mouth

Big dark berry and lavender pastille flavours display impressive depth and power without excess weight. On the finish, it's got a little sweetness, gently tannic and long, with lingering spice and floral pastille notes.
