Fidèle 'Soleilla' Maury Sec AOP 2019
Languedoc, Southern France
Producer: Terre Fidèles
The Soleilla vineyard is perched high in the dramatic hills and terraces above the Vallée d’Agly with a unique character of its own. The famed black schist is interspersed with pockets of limestone from the higher slopes, combining the richness and power that is typical of Maury with a fresher, more finely defined character.
Our debut 2019 Maury Sec, crafted by Fergal Tynan MW, is a blend of 80% old vine Grenache from the hillside Soleilla vineyard and 20% of century old Carignan from the summit of the plateau. Both sites are tended by our friend and grower Julien Montagne.
Only 2660 bottles were produced in branded, single layer 6 x bottle flat cartons.
Heady and opulent but somehow fresh and refined. Ying and yang, darkness and light, power and grace. A very special site and a very special wine.
Suitable for Vegetarians & Vegans
