Owning & Enjoying


Pairing

Red meats, fresh goat cheese. It stands up equally well to spicy, exotic sauces. 

Tasting notes

On the nose there are hints of blackberry, vanilla and melon, while on the palate there is blackberry, olive tapenade, not forgetting the touch of bitter orange which gives this wine great originality. The acidity is present but relegated to the background, while the rather supple, mouth coating tannins provide most of the wine’s structure.

Winery Description

Philippe Modat is a Catalan who has returned to his roots. His grandfather had vines and Philippe’s legal studies in Bordeaux triggered his own interest in wine. He bought land and vines in 2007, in partnership with his father, from a coop member in Cassagnes, on a 300 metres altitude plateau in the Agly valley. Philippe is converting the vineyards to biodynamic viticulture. The winemaking is carried out in a custom-build cellar made of eco-friendly materials. The soil of gneiss is well suited to produce elegant white wine and reds with silky tannins and a refreshing character.
