The Côtes du Roussillon Villages AOC was established in 1977. It comprises no more than 3000 ha of very steep hillsides with schist, granite and limestone soils. Our vines are located around the village of Maury, at the foot of a cliff dominated by the Chateau de Quéribus (Cathar castle) on soils resulting from the erosion of the
Beautiful garnet red colour. Intense, elegant nose with notes of fresh fruit mixed with spices, gradually developing hints of liquorice and smoke. On the palate, the intense flavours mingle with a smooth structure, and plump, well-integrated tannins. Good length and freshness make this a pleasant, very drinkable wine.
Winter in the region was generally quite rainy. Soil water reserves were ideally replenished in December. In this respect, 2019 is very different from 2018, which had a particularly wet spring. May and early June were rather cool. The soils took time to warm up, which slowed down the availability of mineral elements in the soils and slowed down the growth of the vine. Summer was particularly dry and especially excessively hot in July with a heat wave beginning in late June. Harvest happened one week earlier compare to last year with healty but uneven ripenning.
