It is said that the most beautiful places generate great wines. It is very true for the Coume del Mas Estate, located near Banyuls sur Mer. Philippe Gard has a close tie to his region, and to his vines as well. The vineyard is particularly well exposed.
Folio Edition Speciale is a gastronomic white, from olf vines of Grenache gris, planted on Schists and aged on lees for six months, in vats. In reds, the Grenache show more silkiness and greed, just like the Schist Cuvée. With more complexity, Quadratur asks for more time to polish its tanins. Finally, the Estate proposes a Banyuls, muted on grains, and aged one year in vats.
Destemmed and handsorted, cold soak, maceration four weeks with pumpover as required. Aged in tank. The Schistes, with its garnet-red appearance, delivers aromas of red berries and black berries. The bouquet is enhanced with scents of spices and scrubland. Produced from seaside vine parcels, the Tramontane-lashed grapes lend this cuvée an attractive freshness. In the mouth, this wine is fleshy - a key characteristic of the domain's favourite grape variety. Ideal with red meat or Asian cuisine.
