Mataburro - 2020 Otium

2020 Otium

Grenache Gris, Macabeau
Roussillon, France

Fun stuff from Rouissillon! Trained under the eye of Alain Castex, Laurent Roger and Melissa Ingrand took what they learnt to three hectares that Laurent’s father looked after, converting it back to organic viticulture. If you dig wines like Matassa or Axel Prüfer, or you missed out on a Castex bottle, look no further than these stunning wines from Mataburro. Otium is predominantly Grenache, but also contains Grenache Gris and Macabeu. Heavenly nose, broody and floral. It is vinified as a red, but one would serve cooler, like Cerasuolo, Cru Beaujolais or a red from the Jura. Sour cherry, raspberry smack, rambutan. Light on it’s feet, heaven sent.
