AOC COTEAUX DU LANGUEDOC Montpeyroux

 

GRAPE VARIETIES :

Mourvèdre 30% Syrah 25% Carignan 30% Grenache 10% Cinsault 5%.

 

LAND :

Terraces on limestone/clay slopes. Limestone scree dating from the end of the Jurassic era, alternating with very hard Blue Marls dating back some 20 million years to the Lower Miocene era.

 

VINIFICATION :

Long maceration (15 to 30 days) with regular lees circulation.

 

MATURING :

A blend of every red wine grape in the Montpeyroux appellation, the wine spends 20 months in small tuns and barrels before being carefully bottled without fining or filtering.

 

TASTING :

Great complexity on the nose and in the mouth allied with the deep garnet colour that results from the grapes being picked when the skins are fully mature.

 

GASTRONOMIC SOULMATES :

A real treat with beef fillet with chanterelle mushrooms, game served with a strawberry coulis, spitroast woodcock served on toast coated with its juices.
