This lively, distinguished wine with silky tannins is a gold standard in the Languedoc. More info
This cuvée is aged for two years in oak barrels. The nose is highly complex with aromas of black fruit (blackcurrant and blackberry), notes of musk and spices. Extensive on the palate, aromas of black fruit, spices and liquorice abound. Its structure is clean, and tannins are silky.
In 1998, Frédéric Pourtalié left his local co-operative to found Domaine de Montcalmès. He had already studied under the most demanding of producers: Alain Graillot at Crozes-Hermitage and Olivier Jullien (Mas Jullien) and Laurent Vaillé at La Grange des Pères. To explain, Montcalmès, La Grange des Pères and Mas de Daumas Gassac are all sited around the village of Aniane in the Terrasses du Larzac – an enormous terroir whose profile these three domains have succeeded in raising. Located some thirty kilometres north-west of Montpelier, the operation covers 22 hectares of Terrasses du Larzac-appellation vines. The wines of Montcalmès have grown continually in precision and balance, and are now ranked among the finest wines of the Languedoc.
