2019 Mas Coutelou "Mise de Printemps", Languedoc, France

£23.50

The Coutelou Domaine is situated a few kilometres from Bezier, in the Languedoc. Farming only 13ha, JF has farmed organically and biodynamically since inception but believes in more than doing something just for certification. This is a way of life, a calling a passion.

The "Mise de Printemps" cuvee is made from Grenache, Grenache and more Grenache. Winemaking is very "natural" in that he lets nature take its course. No added anything and no taking anything out.

This proves why Grenache is possible the greatest red grape in the world (well, we think). It is floral and lifted on the nose, yet rich and meaty on the palate with gorgeous savory spice.
