Tasting Notes

The Mediterranean influences of earthy, wild herbs make this robust red wine dense and concentrated, yet very lively. It displays a somewhat stony and intense finish that is still infectiously juicy. You need a big glass to drink this wine, because it needs time and air to truly express itself. When it opens up, the intensity of the black fruits, the elusive minerality, the elegance and great balance become dramatically evident. Julien Montagne doesn't hide his wine behind masks; he employs no tricks. This is a wine made in the vineyards-- truly authentic. This wine is great with BBQ meats, lamb, beef, you name it.

In the foothills of the Pyrénées Mountains, not far from the Mediterranean sea, Clos del Rey is situated in the center of almost 900 acres in the tiny village of Maury. The estate has been owned and farmed by the Montagne family since 2001. The vineyard itself is nestled among a protected area of garrigues (rosemary, thyme, cistus.) Vines of up to 120 years of age are allowed to grow natural and untrained, in the old-fashioned way, known as the goblet/bush style. Though, it is what lies beneath the vineyard that lends much of the character and complexity found in their wines. An abandoned iron mine resides on the property, imparting red and orange hues to the soils of Clos del Rey, as well as a soft minerality and silky mouthfeel to the wines. Julien Montagne makes complex wines that truly represent his vineyards and his Catalan roots--you can almost smell the sun.
