Wine Region: Languedoc-Roussillon - France
Grape: Grenache 90%, 5% Macabeo 5% Carignan.
Tasting notes: SWEET RED
Russet color with brown reflections. Intense notes of dark chocolate, baked figs and accompanied with fresh mint. Frank and surprising, yet bold and powerful attack with a hint of freshness from the acidity, along with aromas of fig, fresh nut and perfect balance between alcohol and fruit.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 94 / 100
“The seductive 1980 Maury vintage features walnut-aged aromas but also plentiful cherry fruit, even after nearly 40 years of aging. It’s fresher and more vibrant than the NV 40 Ans. If perhaps a touch less complex. Medium to full bodied, it finishes silky and long.” Joe Czerwinski
About the Winery:
The 170 ha of Mas Amiel vines are located in the South of France between the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees mountains.
In 1816, a bishop bet one of his plots of land at a gaming table and lost it to Raymond Etienne Amiel. At that time, the property consisted only of 10ha of vines. Destroyed by the phylloxera in 1865, the estate was replanted with American vines and a cellar was built.
At the beginning of the 20th century, Jean Dupuy produced the first natural sweet wine branded Mas Amiel. The estate continued to expand throughout the whole century. In 1999, Olivier Decelle took over Mas Amiel and developed the property into a world-renowned benchmark.
