Venge Silencieux Cabernet Sauvignon 2021 entices with its powerful and full-bodied character, delivering an exquisite symphony of aromas and flavors. Upon uncorking, the nose is greeted by a delightful blend of sweet cassis, anise, blackberries, roasted coffee, and vanilla. These scents intertwine to create an alluring bouquet that promises a rich and rewarding experience.
With each sip, the firm tannins make their presence known upfront, lending a robust structure that coats the palate. The wine’s mouthfeel is nothing short of luxurious, captivating the senses and leading to a concentrated, lingering finish that seems to endure indefinitely. Its depth and complexity are hallmarks of the winemaker’s skill, revealing a wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared for years to come, reaching its peak potential around 2030.
The craftsmanship behind this exceptional vintage is apparent in its production process. Venge Vineyards employed a 100% gravity flow system, ensuring a gentle and precise handling of the hand-picked fruit. The state-of-the-art Pellenc sorting and destemming system produced what can only be described as “fruit caviar,” resulting in pristine whole berries.
After 20 to 35 days on the skins, the wine was separated into “free run” and “light press” fractions, further refining its structure and complexity. The wine then matured in 65% new, tight-grained French Oak barrels from esteemed cooperages such as Boutes, Sylvain, Taransaud, Gamba, and Alain Foquet. Employing only native, spontaneous yeast and malolactic fermentations, the winemakers ensured the most authentic expression of the terroir.
