Les Vignerons de Maury, Maury 1928, Tuile

(1 customer review)

£20.00 Per Bottle

This is a powerful and delicious fortified red wine that’s been aged in small barrels for many years.

Mature, deep in colour and deliciously nutty, you’ll notice unique aromas of toffee and fig.

It’s a strong wine, so ideal as an alternative to port with a crumbly, young cheese.

Description

Flavour Profile/Aroma

There are some powerful aromas from this strong red, including fig, redcurrants and salted almonds. Flavour-wise, you’ll taste the nutty strength of the deep red thanks to its ageing process and Grenache grapes.

Recommended food pairings

This Maury is rich and warming, so makes a great dessert wine. A fresh yet crumbly Comté style cheese balances it well and, of course, it’s a classic with after-dinner chocolates.

Growing Conditions
This fortified wine uses red Grenache grapes. Typically, they’re picked only after they’ve shrivelled in Maury’s sun: the climate’s warm and the sun’s strong thanks to Maury’s South-East in-land location.

Winemaking notes

Maury wine’s produced by stopping the fermentation process to add alcohol. This lets the winemaker conserve grape sugar and is how the wine gets its name: Vin Doux Naturel (Natural Sweet Wine). The liquid ageing process, the solera, used for this wine since 1928 has been regularly refreshed. Both red and white Grenache grapes are harvested here.

About the Winemaker

Les Vignerons de Maury has been established since 1910. In 1980s, the winegrowers created a cave on site for developing their wines and enhancing their flavours. The winemakers age wine that can be dated back to the late 1920s in their winery.

    Tried this wine as part of the amazing French cheese and wine tasting event. Seriously good and goes perfectly with the Bleu d’Auvergne cheese. Although I would quite happily drink it on its own. A truly delicious fortified wine.
