Mas Des Caprices Oufti 2012, (an anagram of Fitou), is a blend of mainly Mourvédre with Carignan and Grenache. A gorgeous dark purple in colour, which on the nose has a tough warm scent with aromas of ripe cherries and soft sweet dark fruits. On the palate there are deep rich notes of black ripe fruits, (black cherry, damson), it is peppery and slightly spicy, all rounded off with a hint of oak. The tannins are very soft and well balanced. All in all a tremendous wine which can be drank as an aperitif, or would marry well with any beef dish.
50% mourvedre, 25% carignan, 25% grenache
Cuvee Amelie Chardonnay 2016 from Domaine Cazulet.
The aromas of this un-oaked chardonnay are fresh and fruity. On the palate there is a lovely freshness to it, with a hint of white peach and lemon and good acidity. It is very well balanced with a medium finish. We think this chardonnay is a fabulous wine for the price. If you think you don't like chardonnay, we suggest you try this.
100% Chardonnay wine from the great organic vineyard of Stephane Cazulet. This is a very special chardonnay wine and we personally think that if you don't want to pay the price tag for a Burgundy, this is a great substitute. Aged in oak for 6 months, it has a pleasant nose of tropical fruits. It is rich and slightly buttery with delicious fruit of melon, pineapple and nectarine. We think it is quite special. Great with creamy dishes, salmon, and white richer meats.
The vines are planted on clay and limestone hills at 140 metres altitude, with sandy pebbles and draining rock of fossilised coral.This beautiful 100% Vermentino (or Rolle as it is also known in France), is slightly mineral on the nose with notes of white flower. It is light and refreshing with good acidity, green apple, pear and lemon rind.
