Carignan and Grenache from more than 130 year old sticks
Very limited availability
 

Tasting note Clos del Rey

Impressive Roussillon. Seductive scent of ripe blackberry and blueberry complemented with nuances of black olive, leather and liquorice. Powerful, full-bodied and creamy in taste with firm, polished tannins and perfectly intertwined acids. Lasts for a long time. Powerful, full-bodied red wine to enjoy on its own, or to serve with hearty (game) dishes. Ready to drink from 4 years; shelf life at least 10 years after harvest.
 
Description
Clos del Rey is the top wine of the cult domain of the same name of father and son Montagné. Their winery is located in the heart of Maury, which has traditionally been best known for its fortified sweet wines. Clos del Rey, on the other hand, has become famous in recent years for its excellent quality dry red Roussillon wines.

This has everything to do with the fact that Jacques and Julien put quality above all else. Although they own a whopping 50 hectares of vineyards, the majority of the grapes are sold to a local cooperative. They make their wines exclusively from their 8 hectares of the very best plots.

Their prestige cuvée is made of predominantly carignan supplemented with grenache from no less than 130 year old canes. The grape plants grow at an altitude of about 300 meters, amidst the well-known southern French garrigue vegetation. The yields are extremely low: between 12 and 17 hectoliters per hectare.

After the manual harvest, the wine spontaneously ferments, after which the wine matures further in French oak barriques. However, the emphasis is not on the wood influence, which gives the wine a wonderful balance between fruit and structure. A beautiful wine not to be missed, with an unprecedented concentration! Be quick, because availability is limited.
