2015 Cotes-du-Roussillon-Villages "Mas de la Garrigue" (Força Real, Domaine)

Domaine Forca Real, Mas de la Garrigue, Cotes du Roussillon Villages, Languedoc, France, 2015

{organic} 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Carignan

GLEAMING BLACKBERRY, DESERT GARRIGUES & WHITE PEPPERY SPICE

Just wrap your head around the fact that estate dates to the mid 13th century! Now belonging to the Cotes du Roussion Villages AOP, the soils are schist-based (crystalline rock rich in magnesium and potassium) and retain heat so at night when the air cools, the ground reflects heat up to the vines continuing their ripening as evening temperatures plummet in this arid area. These additional hours of warmth boost the potent Mediterranean ripeness while the cool nights make for beautifully balancing acidity!

Serving Suggestions: Grilled, marinated flank steak w finely-chopped garlic, shallots, black pepper. Eggplant parmesan w/ ricotta, smoked paprika, & balsamic vinegar.
