2018 Schistes, Coume del Mas, Collioure

This is a deliciously juicy, plush Grenache from Roussillon talents, Coume del Mas. It has sweet, sweet berry fruit on the nose which is laced with liquorice, pepper, violets, and crushed raspberries. Its upfront juiciness is counterbalanced by a satisfying bitterness that accompanies the ripe fruit on the palate. Silky tannins and a supple, fine finish.

2018 Schistes, Coume del Mas, Collioure
Coume del Mas

This 15 hectare domaine clings to the steep slopes around Banyuls sur Mer, as France dips down into Spain, on the Mediterranean coast. From this challenging terroir Philippe and Nathalie Gard craft precise and elegant wines. No tractors can reach these vineyards that are wedged between the mountains and the sea, so all the vineyard work is done by hand or by horse. In a region with a long history of fortified sweet wines, Coume del Mas is an outstanding voice for the quality of still dry wines emerging from this part of the Roussillon.
