Mas Amiel Cuvee Speciale 10 Ans d'Ãge Vin Doux Naturel NV

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Smooth and complex, with an oxidative element adding coffee and grilled almond accents to the plum and prune flavors. Medium-bodied and balanced, it expands on the finish, embracing a caramel note that lingers. Drink now.

Mas Amiel’s classic, non-vintage renditions of Maury keep getting better for the price, first off because the genre remains a challenge to sell and the estate wants to make an impressive price:quality statement, but also simply because the younger wines — such as the current batch of nv Maury 6 Ans d’Age that I recently tasted — are now based entirely on wine harvested and vinified since the aspiring and inspired new team took over here in 1997. This elegant wine redolent of roasted chestnuts, toasted pralines, dried cherries, and cocoa powder is smooth and polished on the palate, retains a lovely, refreshing brightness and finishes with superb subtlety of flavor and sweetness. There are many more things one can serve this with, though, than chocolate desserts — one simply needs to experiment. Given the price of a bottle, and since it will remain fresh for months after opening, there is no excuse!

Reminiscent of tawny Port with dark plum and dried cherry flavors, along with a healthy dose of brown sugar. Chocolate and spice notes fill the finish. Drink now.

Aged in glass demijohns for one year and oak tuns for nine, this is a mature selection that’s ready to drink now, though it can certainly keep for many more years to come. A beautiful rancio characteristic leads, with aromas of walnut shell, orange oil and earthy spice fill the bouquet. Skin-driven fruit flavors of cherry and plum dominate the gripping palate, while the complex finish reveals accents of black tea, licorice root and baking spice.
