Tasting Notes…

This Maury from Domaine Mas de Lavail is a vin doux naturel; a Port-like fortified wine similar to Banyuls, in this case made from 100% old-vine Black Grenache.

The colour is a very intense purple/black, and the nose has a lovely perfume of violets and old roses, with a kirsch-like cherry fruit, plenty of spice, and a gentle note of toffee and brown sugar. On the palate it is just delicious: a big, warming, beautifully sweet slick of luscious red fruits floods over the tongue, backed up by a warming core of cinnamon, clove and cocoa, and a fudge-like, sweet and marmalade background. There`s a spritely edge of tannins and a lovely acidity that dries the sides of the mouth and counteracts the sweetness, to leave an elegant and very, very long, poised finish. Terrific and delicious stuff and a great price for southern France`s equivalent of a single-quinta vintage Port

We say…

The intense hot, dry climate means small harvest, but wonderfully concentrated fruits. Mas de Lavail wines are outstanding: powerful, well balanced with wonderfully rich aromas, fine tannins and glorious colours.
The wine is recommended to be served at 18%C as aperitif, with blue veined cheeses or chocolate desserts.

Wine Style : Rich and Warming Reds, Intense and complex Reds , Silky smooth reds, Vanilla and toasty wines , Something for dessert
