Een zeer evenwichtige Maury.
Sweet - Full-bodied
Domaine de la Coume Majou
Many success stories started in a garage. Luc Charlier’s story is written there daily, because the garage-shed of his small village house in Corneilla-de-la-Rivière holds all his winemaking equipment. This is where a minor miracle has occurred every year since 2005. In the region, he is pointed out as "the Belgian who makes fruity wines without wood". Domaine de la Coume Majou enthusiasts will tell you: this former kidney specialist produces outstanding Roussillon wines.
One of Luc Charlier’s primary reasons for settling in Roussillon was to produce "great" sweet wines, which he learnt to make in certain port houses. The dose of alcohol added ("mutage sur grains" where the mutage takes place during maceration on the skins) corresponds to the minimum permitted by law (5%), the aim being to preserve the fruity, wine-flavoured character, in the style of the great Vintage ports in Portugal. This cuvée has never come into contact with wood; it was bottled without filtering.
Deep red robe with glints of purple.
Nose fragrant with prunes, macerated in its juice.
Full, long mouth, with a hint of chocolate at the finish.
Rich chocolate cake, obviously. Although a good Roquefort is equally tempting.
