Domaine Cabirau Serge & Nicolas Maury Sec 2013
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Maury Sec Serge & Nicolas is a blockbuster that goes screaming past its humble price point. Made from a blend of 60% unoaked Grenache and 28% Syrah and 12% Carignan aged in 500-liter demi-muids, it boasts tons of kirsch, peppery herbs, licorice and hints of crushed flowers to go with a full-bodied, layered, and beautifully concentrated feel on the palate. Coming all from the black schist soils around the village of Maury, it pretty much maxes out the QPR scale and is a complete, balanced Roussillon to drink over the coming 7-8 years.
Wine SpectatorA fresh, savory undertone marks the red berry, dried herb and grilled plum flavors in this fleshy, full-bodied red. Crisp acidity drives the finish of green olive, spice and hot stone. Drink now through 2017. 1,060 cases made.
