2019 Folio, Coume del Mas, Collioure

This barrel fermented Grenache Gris from a brilliant estate in Roussillon delivers a level of precision and elegance one wouldn't normally associate with this wild southwest corner of the French coast. Coume del Mas’s wines exemplify the terrific quality of still dry wines emerging from a region previously associated with sweet, fortified ones. Perfumed with almonds and an exotic touch from some salty reduction, its well-judged oak gives weight and balance, and rounds out this silky, delicious white.

2019 Folio, 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.
