Hand crafted from two schist laden vineyards with extremely small yields (1/4 ton per acre), this limited 224 case production of 100 year old Carignan and 70 year old Grenache is aged in large barrels for 36 months to bring out the pure expression of the unique Maury terroir and it’s incredible microclimate.

The 2014 Courier is slightly more Burgundian than the 2013 yet offers similar notes of crushed flowers, bouquet garni, game, leather, and assorted red and black fruits. It too is silky and seamless on the palate, with beautiful tannins. It’s another Cotes Catalanes to enjoy over the coming decade.

The 2014 IGP Cotes Catalanes Courier is more open and sexy than the 2013 and reveals lots of black cherry, white pepper, leather and a touch minerality in its charming, fruit-forward and medium-bodied, yet still fresh style.
