Cuvée Raphaël is the flagship wine of Parenchère and is made in memory of the renovator of the estate: Raphaël Gazaniol. It is produced from a selection of the finest plots and oldest vines with especially low yields. The vines are 40 years old on average and are planted on well-draining chalky clay soils. Cuvée Raphaël is aged in a mix of new and used French oak barriques.

The Cuvée Raphaël offers delicate aromas of ripe cherry and cassis on the nose. On the palate, the wine is harmonious; displaying power, structure and freshness all at once. The fruit is omnipresent and the tannins are present but very soft.

Rated 92 by James Suckling

A dense and rich wine with lovely fruit and richness. Shows a lot here for this appellation. Full-bodied and lightly chewy. Flavorful finish. Drink in 2024.
