Clos Del Rey, Cotes du Rouissillon Villages

Clos del Rey
Product Code: RY04ZZRC

Tasting Notes

Rosemary, lavender, and otherwise resinous garrigue herbs ally themselves with ripe blackberry, peat, and saliva-inducing mineral salts on a dense, oily-textured palate underlain with fine, firm tannins, leading to a genuinely exhilarating finish, with sappy, mouthwatering, positively vibratory length that involves tactile and active impingement of stony and somehow almost crystalline mineral character

                    [Notes1] => Twenty years ago, when the market for the fortified wines of Maury started to collapse, Jacques Montagué started to buy up the best old parcels of Grenache and Carignan he could find. He wanted the vines to have a future. Jacques’ son Julien works with him in the business and together they now have 50ha of vines. The quality found in Clos del Rey stems from the fact that father and son save the best 8ha for their own wines, selling the rest of their fruit to the local co-operative. In the cellar they use older oak and low intervention. Decanter’s Andrew Jefford describes the L’Aragone as ‘the greatest Carignan he has ever tasted’. If you need persuading that old vines make great wines, then look no further.

About this product +

Producer >

Twenty years ago, when the market for the fortified wines of Maury started to collapse, Jacques Montagué started to buy up the best old parcels of Grenache and Carignan he could find. He wanted the vines to have a future. Jacques’ son Julien works with him in the business and together they now have 50ha of vines. The quality found in Clos del Rey stems from the fact that father and son save the best 8ha for their own wines, selling the rest of their fruit to the local co-operative. In the cellar they use older oak and low intervention. Decanter’s Andrew Jefford describes the L’Aragone as ‘the greatest Carignan he has ever tasted’. If you need persuading that old vines make great wines, then look no further.
