The opinion of the sommelier
« An excellent price/quality ratio for this cuvee that I selected among the different wines of this AOC tasted last month. The mourvèdre is a red grape variety with a spicy nose and pepper aromas. The oriental mouth is very subtle and becomes slightly bitter at the end. Don’t hesitate to purchase one or two cases of this wine, as it will be a pleasure to drink this wine in the next years. »
The Mourvèdre is a grape variety that produces wines with hints of spices (pepper). It needs a sunny climate with an omnipresent heat. On the contrary, the Syrah is less difficult to cultivate. As for the Grenache, it simplifies aftertaste: it enables to make the wine more supple and smoother.
The robe has a light and deep garnet colour, dark with purple reflections.
Nose full of spices (pepper) and oriental hints.
The mouth is subtle, winy and silky.
Service : Between 14 and 16°C. Open 1 hour before serving. Keeping potential until 2016.

The Domaine Mas du Blanc is a family property since 1639. The actual owner, Jean Michel Parcé, produces wines of Banyuls and Collioure designations. The Parcé family, considered as the origin of the Collioure and Banuyls designations, has a regional reputation that is well deserved. It is one of the most beautiful vineyards in the department!
The Domaine Mas du Blanc is spread over 19 hectares, cultivated on a schist stone subsoil. The wines that are growing on slaty soils have hints of undergrowth, and cooked and dried fruits. These wines are also known for being more alcoholic, with a long and pleasant aftertaste. But, it is harder to work on slaty soils due to a lack of limestone, that brings oxygen to the soils.
