Winemaking : Traditional, total de-stemming, light crushing, natural indigenous grape yeasts.
Winetasting : A deep red wine. On the nose an explosion of red fruits. In the mouth, a lovely tannic structure, aromas of the ‘Garrigues’ or plains, and underwood.
This shows big olive, beef jerky beef jus and hoisin aromas on the nose over a base of jammy blackberry and sweet cherry fruit, accented with a hint of vanilla. Matte and extracted on entry, there’s a lot of dark fruit and black pepper here in a muscular, focused style. This seems a touch closed today, though there is plenty of black fruit and medicinal notes to keep things interesting right through a powerful, clean finish that shows a hint of cinnamon.
Dense and elegant, Garrigues The the Montirius Estate is a model of mastery and expertise to its name. This Vacqueyras offers a bouquet with explosive scents of red and black fruits in a crisp palate, generously aromatic, mixing red fruits, under wood and spices in a fine structure and velvety tannins. The final is fresh and mineral.
