Borie de Maurel, Maxime 2016
€20.00
100% mourvedre, a Mediterranean version of cabernet sauvignon. The result is a great wine which will deepen in complexity over time, wonderfully dark and concentrated with notes of spices, fig and leather. Silky tannins sustain the peppery texture to a never-ending finish. Ideal for roast lamb, duck with olives, morel mushrooms in sauce...
Description

Details

The vines of the Borie de Maurel cling to the stony slopes of the Montagne noire, north-east of Carcassonne. The particular characteristics of this terroir enabled recognition as the AOC La Livinière in 1999, the first specific village Appellation of the Languedoc region. MIchel Escande decided to settle here in 1989. Since then, 'the wizard of Félines', as he has been named, is highly considered by specialised press all over the world and his Cuvée Sylla is now served at the best tables. Since then Michel and his sons cultivate their exceptional terroir with enthusiasm and technical mastery.
