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. »
TerroirThe 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.
Grape varietyThe 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.
VintageThe vintage 2011 was one of the vintages with the highest productivity for the Collioure AOC. This vintage is synonymous of pleasure wine. You can drink it now, while the fruit is still omnipresent.
Sold by cases of 3 or 6 bottles until the 31st of March 2014. Delivery within 21 days.
