Product Description

This is the Mourvèdre-dominant cuvée of the Mas de Libian line-up, finessed by 10% Grenache. It's a unique wine that deserves a wider audience. Granted, it is labelled as a humble Côtes du Rhône Villages, yet it offers the depth and class usually associated with a top Gigondas, Rasteau or Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Calade is old Provençal patois for a steep, stony path, which gives you an insight into the terroir for this wine. It comes from a very low-yielding, one-hectare parcel of 50-year-old vines grown in galets roulés (alluvially smoothed stones) that run between 1.5-3 metres deep. One third of the wine is aged in Stockinger demi-muids (600-litre barrels), with the remainder in cement. This is really lovely. It has the meaty, anise and dark fruit characters that you might expect of a top Mourvedre-based cuvée and yet it is so seductive, floral and vibrantly fresh. The palate weight is, dare we say it, Burgundian! A terrifically classy Rhône.
