Situated in the Terrasses du Larzac sub-district of the Coteaux du Languedoc, Domaine de Malavieille / Mas de Bertrand has been in Mirieille Bertrand’s family for 6 generations. It is an estate steeped in tradition, with dinosaur footprints and Gallo-Roman archeological remains serving as a testament to a long history of the land and its people. The domaine is certified organic and biodynamic.
This is a blend of Syrah, Carignan and Mourvedre from the Mas de Bertrand estate in Montpeyroux. Garnet with a purple tinge in the glass. Aromas of raspberry and blackberry mix with warming spices like pepper, cinnamon and clove. There is initially a fresh liveliness on the palate, that gives way to a round, velvety mouthfeel and flavours of pepper, olives, juniper, licorice and an overall balsamic note.
Until the 1990s, the Languedoc region of France was known for its lacklustre vin ordinaire that was bought in bulk and cost less than water. Today, it is one of the most exciting and innovative wine-producing regions in the country. Since so many different grape varieties grow together in the Languedoc, the region is all about blends. Reds are generally full-bodied and fruit-driven. Made from Syrah, Carignan, and Mourvedre, this wine is juicy and spicy. The producer is certified organic and biodynamic.
