Impressive quality Roussillon
From cult domain Clos del Rey
Carignan and grenache from over 130 year old sticks
Very limited availability
 

Tasting note Clos del Rey

Impressive Roussillon. Seductive scent of ripe blackberry and blueberry supplemented with nuances of black olive, leather and licorice. Powerful, full and creamy in taste with firm, polished tannin and perfectly intertwined acids. Remains very long. Powerful full-bodied red wine to enjoy, or serve with hearty (game) dishes. Ready to drink from 4 years old; at least 10 years after harvest.
 
Description
The Clos del Rey is the top wine of the eponymous cult domain of father and son Montagné. Their winery is in the heart of Maury, which traditionally enjoys fame for its fortified sweet wines. Clos del Rey, on the other hand, gained fame in recent years with its excellent quality dry red Roussillon wines.

That has everything to do with Jacques and Julien putting quality above everything. Although they own no less than 50 hectares of vineyards, the majority of the grapes are sold to a local cooperative. They only make their wines from their 8 hectares of the best plots.

Their prestige cuvée is made from mainly carignan supplemented with grenache from no less than 130 year old sticks. The grape plants grow at a height of around 300 meters, amid 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 fermentes spontaneously, after which the wine continues to mature in French oak barriques. However, the emphasis is not on the wood influence, which gives the wine a beautiful balance between fruit and structure. A wonderful wine not to be missed, with an unprecedented concentration! Be quick, because the availability is only limited.
