Mas Coutelou - 2018 Couleurs Reunies
'Many Grapes, Many Colours' reads the label of this ecclectic vin, which is crafted from – you guessed it – numerous different grape varieties. A rare bottling brimming with dense black fruits, both on the nose and in the mouth. Pure fruit, juicy and deep. It will likely age better than you.
Jean Francois 'Jeff' Coutelou produces some of the finest quality and best value wines in the Languedoc. Located in the old winemaking village Puimisson, Mas Coutelou was established by Jeff's father in ’72 and has been organic since ’87 – before it was fashionable! Today Jeff farms 14ha of vines and hundreds of olive trees (which protect his vines from neighbours' farming methods). His tiny-yielding vines are tended by hand, vinification is natural, without additives and tailored to the season, and bottling is done by gravity, without filtration. Jeff's potions pulse with vitality, in a region where the vast majority of wines are prone to flatness and dreary viticultural continuity.
