Domaine Gourt de Mautens Rouge IGP Vaucluse 2016

Domaine Gourt de Mautens Rouge IGP Vaucluse 2016

The 15 hectares of vines consist of 12 hectares of black grapes and three hectares of white. The estate was certified organic in 1989 (by Ecocert) and biodynamic in 2008 (by Demeter). Over two-thirds of the vines are 50-100 years old, with the rest being 10-30 years old. The very low yields of 10-15 hl/ha are partly a result of this high average vine age. Soils are marls, chalky clay in composition

"Majority Grenache, with Carignan, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Counoise, Cinsault, Vaccarèse and Terret Noir. From three plots, tasted separately. Two of these are north west-facing, limestone-rich slopes, planted with 80-100 year-old vines. These bring aromatic violet fruit, with a linear drive. A south west-facing slope, around 300 metres, adds bitter cherries, supple raspberry fruit and length, the elevation countering the greater sun exposure. The whole is sweetly red-fruited and supple, with fruit-coated tannins; the 2016 density is refreshed by a quite brilliant brightness of fruit. "
