Wine Region: Languedoc Roussillon - France
Grape: 90% Grenache, 10% Shiraz
An impressive nose, starting with a zest of pomelo and blood orange, moving onto notes of black berry and black currant. The same impressions and the same depth reappear with an attack offering remarkable freshness, and the same type of notes – rich fruity flavors cover the palate. This wine offers plenty of opulence and aromatic freshness, the sign of a great Grenache wine derived from calcium-rich schist and red clay.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93 / 100
“'Vers le Nord' comes from a unique low yield 2-ha parcel with a complex mixture of soil types. 90% old vines Grenache Noir and 10% Syrah form the blend to make a wine with opulence and impressive aromatic freshness.” - Robert Parker
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.
