Mas des Dames la Dame Coteaux de Languedoc 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The charming Lidewij Kuijper, who we shall resist burdening with any type of<br/>Flying Dutchwoman soubruiquet, is quickly gaining a reputation for<br/>her excellent Coteaux de Languedoc family of wines, thier vines<br/>pleasingly located in the gentle hills of Murveil les Béziers. <br/> <br/>The sub- nomenclature reflects that fact that that the entire ethos of the<br/>Domaine is dominated by the fairer sex, including of course, the elegant and<br/>feminine style of the wines themselves. The two key reds are now, enticingly,<br/>named La Dame and...La Diva...The blend of La Dame is Syrah<br/>(40%), Grenache (40%) and Carignan (20%), its fruit hand-picked and completely<br/>destemmed. <br/> <br/>The wine is rich yet pure and fruity with a velvety texture, and a beautiful<br/>ripeness. Black fruits are married to liquorice, with an elegant weave of<br/>tannins and a clean but persistent finish. Perfect with venison or roasts. This<br/>Grande Dame is a Diva by any other name.... <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer) <br/><br/><br/>

Mas des Dames is a former 18th century farmhouse surrounded by 14 hectares of vines, in the hillsides behind Beziers, Southern France. Where the Languedoc is often a 'sea' of vineyards, in this hidden valley we where lucky to still find the ancient structure of small plots, surrounded by a natural flora. This 'garrigue' of oak, olive and pinetrees creates a natural balance in vineyards, enabling us to do without any insecticides and just minimal treatments against illnesses. We never used chemical fertilizers and do without any irrigation. Reason why the yields are low (about 35kl/ha), but of a nicely concentrated quality. A label for organic farming is pending.
