About the Wine:

Located in the Agly Valley, this region of the Roussillon is rugged, sheltered, and warm with distinctive black schist soils. These are the characteristics that make the terroir unique and in recognition of this fact as well as the prevailing trend in favor of dry wines, the AOC of Maury Sec was created. Maury Sec is darker, more mineral and more brooding in general than wines from the rest of the Roussillon. Grenache, not surprisingly, is the main grape along with smaller plantings of Syrah, Carignan and Mourvedre. Saint Roch even makes a small quantity of white wine from Grenache Blanc and Marsanne.

AGE OF VINES: 50
SOIL: Schist, clay limestone, gravel
AGING: 5 months in concret

Ratings & Reviews

89-91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A blend of mostly Grenache Blanc, with 20% Roussanne, the 2015 Cotes du Roussillon Vieilles Vignes has exotic, vibrant notes of lime, apple peel and mint to go with a racy, saliva-inducing style on the palate. Drink this clean, crisp white on release and over the following year or so." - Jeb Dunnuck (27th Apr 2016)
