Monrouby

Languedoc, languedoc France

Monrouby is a small village in the Languedoc, close to Pomérols, which is where we make the Baron de Badassière and the Vignes de L'Eglise wines. Graeme Paul, who makes these wines for us, was impressed with the fruit from this village and decided to vinify several varietals separately.

The vineyards are located on low lying hills, where the Bassin de Thau (a string of lakes) moderates the climate. As there is little rain in the summer, the gentle breezes from the lakes and the Mediterranean Sea lower evaporation and in turn, reduce vine stress.

The Grenache Blanc is fresh and unoaked and has a lovely depth of flavour that combines nicely with an attractive aromatic lift. It is dry and savoury on the palate. The red, a blend of Syrah and Carignan, has good colour, a spiced red fruit character on the nose and supple tannins on the palate. It has remarkable character for a wine at this price.

The Chardonnay has lifted melony fruit on the nose, with nice roundness and texture on the palate. Graeme ages the wine on its lees in tanks for several months after the vintage to give it extra depth and interest.
