Dry tannins starting to resolve with age. Herbs Provençal. Black figs. Baked blackberry. — 22 days ago
Superb nose with licorice, blackberry, garrigue, other red fruits. This is very intense and inviting. The palate shows a very nice strong acid drive and a great width, with matter on the sides. Licorice and blackberry play back to back notes all along. The mouthfeel is soft, until mid palate where some dusty tannins spice things up a notch. Very long finish with that tannic grain, licorice and blackberry. I'm probably biased as this is my uncle's wine (he bought shares in the vineyard 2 years ago) but this is one of the best grenache blend I've had. More Maury sec please!

“A labor of love”, as described by the savior of the ancient Maury vines and wine broker Kimberly Jones, the courier truly bewitches the mind and ensnares the senses. This rich, flavorful potion is made from 70 year old Grenache wines and 100 year old Carignan vines. Delectable notes of stewed strawberries and black fruits tickle your nostrils as black plum, ripe raspberry, and dried herbs smoothly settle on your palet. Rich flavors of vanilla and leather follow suit. Would pair beautifully with roasted meats or dishes seasoned with rich and earthy spices like cumin or allspice. — 10 months ago
👁️ Wonderful pale tawny colour.
👃 Deep aromas of confites dates, Agent prunes, toffee and torrefied black coffee
👄 Similar aromas found on the nose. Extremely seducing, rich and powerful.

Grenache from Catalonia from winemaker Richard Case who makes Dave Phinney’s D66 project out of Maury. The donkey is the symbol of Catalonia thus the label. Beautiful red color and fresh on the palate upon opening. Starts to be a touch oxidative on the second day but still possessing great fruit. Have loved the other wine from Pertuisane and this is also a great example of Grenache from this region. — 4 years ago
