Sans plus attendre 2011 - Domaine Modat, AOC Côtes du Rousillon, Villages Caramany

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

If you are looking for a wine typical from the south of France, you just found it! I really felt in love at first sight (or at first sip!) with “Sans plus attendre”. I really enjoyed the aromas of pepper, typical of syrah. On the palate, it gets even better: the texture is incredibly silky and the wine displays nice flavours of liquorice. This wine really takes you for a walk through the hills of Roussillon. 

 

Terroir

The specificity of Domaine Modat lies in its underground that wears the pretty name of “gneiss”, a blend of granite and sand. This kind of underground gives to red wines soft tannins, a silky texture and a lot of freshness which is pretty uncommon for wines from Roussillon.

lecepageGrape variety

« Sans plus attendre » is a blend of the three most used varieties in Languedoc-Roussillon: syrah that provides spicy aromas, grenache that gives strong aromas of red berries and carignan known for its strength and refinement. They really blend well together and are responsible for the good reputation of the wine from southern France: powerful but with subtlety.

lemillesime Vintage

Winemakers from Roussillon agree on the fact that 2011 is an exceptionally good vintage. Some of them even speak about the vintage of the century! The winter was cold and followed by a very warm spring that allowed the vine to blossom early, which can be dangerous for the vines’ healthiness. Fortunately, tramontane was blowing constantly protecting the vines from germs and diseases. What can make human beings crazy is good for the grapes! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Already as a child, Philippe Modat was often seen running through the vines. He got involved in the harvests when he was still a law student in Bordeaux. Then, he left for a long journey: his goal was to meet the best winemakers in France and throughout the world. He came back a few years later, ready to share all his new knowledge with the team of Domaine Modat.
