Maury Wine

for this region?

Maury is a sweet, red vin doux naturel style wine produced in the Rousillon region of France, at the foot of the Pyrenees. It is also the name of the southerly town in and around which it is produced, where the ancient Queribus castle still stands. The grapes used are Grenache Blanc, Grenache Noir and Grenache Gris, in red, white and rosé styles. These are made by adding grape spirit to halt the fermentation of the wine and preserve its natural sweetness, a style first developed in the 13th century in nearby Banyuls. These wines are often sweet and fruity when young, developing deeper flavors with cellar aging.

  • I suspect Ms. Maury Baldwin was finding fulfillment via Big Jim the milkman.  I was looking at an old cookbook from the 70's that had poor colour photos of concoctions containing tuna and peas, served cold "perfect for luncheons".  Gag.  Funny how things change.  Remember when Airplane (movie) was hysterical?  Now I watch some things and realise...
