Pas de la Mule

We decided to isolate the grapes from a particularly interesting single vineyard called "Pas de la Mule", after the path that lies behind it, the only passage ("Pas" means passage in Catalan) over the steep hill to the greener vegetation on the north side of the hill. The vineyard is made up of particularly late-ripening mainly very old Grenache vines set on a rocky schist slope at the foot of the Cathar Château de Quéribus.
  • Variety

    Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre
    The Syrah contributes with great depth of colour, roundness, fine tannins and spices.
    Grenache provides volume on the palate and the Mourvedre gives the herby, savoury
    element to the blend.

  • Location

    The Pas de la Mule plots are located around the Domaine de Mas Janeil, in the
    commune of Tautavel. This is the highest block of our vineyard (350m).

  • Tasting notes

    The 2010 has a beautiful deep garnet colour. The aromatic range is concentrated around dark fruit, particularly plums in brandy, enriched with touches of eastern spices and noble wood (mahogany, cedar). Produced from thoroughly ripe grapes, this
    wine shows excellent concentration and plenty of finesse in the texture of its tannins. The mid-palate reveals complex notes of nutmeg, juniper, undergrowth and a hint of citrus fruit. The character of the clay-shale terroir comes through in a subtle, harmonious finish.

  • Suggestions

    Tajine of lamb, 7-hour leg of lamb, roast pigeon, hare "à la royale". Serve cool at
    around 14/15°C.
