Wine Region: Languedoc Roussillon - France
Grape: Grenache Noir (90%), Maccabeu (5%), Carignan (5%)
Tasting notes: A magnificent mahogany amber colored 40-year-old Maury with immensely complex notes of rancio, figs, walnuts, dried fruits, cocoa, beeswax, spices and tobacco. The aftertaste is very long with notes of orange peel and a nice freshness.
'The latest release of the NV Maury 40 Ans features high-toned, walnut-like aromas and notes of maple syrup. Yet it's surprisingly drinkable, being only medium to full-bodied, with moderate sugar levels and hints of mocha and ripe citrus on the long, long finish.'
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.
