(2015) A long-term project of Jean-Claude Mas, this is a 'no sdded sulphur' organic wine, with sulphur not used during the winemaking process. It's a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc from the Languedoc. Inky purple/black in colour it is very primary, with bold raspberry and bright cherry and plum fruit, a touch of watercolour paintbox lift, and a background of spice. Totally convincing on the palate, where a dry, quite solid black fruit drives the wine, a nicely roughening, brisk edge of tannin and the juicy acid character of cherry and plum skins adds an edge to the plush fruit, with a little chocolate fleshing out the finish. An impressive no sulphur wine.
