IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Côtes Catalanes IGP Produced and bottled by Department 66 in Maury, France

95 Points 


"In the same mold as 2012, the 2013 Cotes Catalanes Grenache D66 is being held for six months in bottle prior to release. Completely destemmed (as are all the wines here) and aged in 30% new barrels, it has elegant, lively notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, pepper, and violets to go with a medium to full-bodied, balanced, and yet still hedonistic feel on the palate. A slightly tweaked blend of 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah, and 10% Carignan, this is a more civilized version of this cuvee that still won’t disappoint with regard to depth, flavor, or length. Drink it over the coming 5-7 years."

30% new French oak for 18 months Aged in the bottle for 5 months before release Alcohol 15.2%

"In France, the “department” exists as an administrative division much like a county does in America. Deep in the southwest corner of the country likes Department 66, which serves as the inspiration and namesake for our winery and vineyards in the town of Maury. Roughly two hours east of Barcelona, Spain, and thirty minutes inland from the ancient Roman port city of Perpignan, old-vine Grenache thrives along with Syrah and Carignan in the 'Cotes Catalanes', a sub-appellation of the Rousillon. The vineyards were planted more than 60 years ago in an area whose terroir is similar to the nearby growing region of Priorat in Spanish Catalonia, a schist crystalline rock-based soil that retains heat but is poor in organic nutrients and nitrogen." -Winery
