Winemaker's Notes:

Very generous nose (dark and red fruits, garrigue, liquorice…). Full-bodied wine with nice tannins, a complex aromatic expression and a long and mineral finish.

When young, pair with grilled meat with herbs, tajine, tapenade. At maturity, pair with game or cassoulet.

My Notes:

About Mas Cal Demoura:

In the Occitan language, "Cal Demoura" Means "Must Stay" .
At the time of Languedoc winemakers were abandoning their land, Jean-Pierre Jullien, passionate winemaker, had made this his motto motto. Having opted very early for a qualitative approach and respectful of the land, it is part of the winegrowers that have marked the history of the quality revolution of Languedoc wines ... Driven by his passion for wine and aware of potential local Terrasses du Larzac, it retains only its best vineyards and wine making in starting Mas Cal Demoura in the 1990s in the town of Jonquières.

Isabelle & Vincent Goumard, wine enthusiasts, whom graduated in enology from the University of Dijon, succeeded him to the field when he retired. They bought these parcels of vines (red and white) at Mas Jullien on the soil of limestone gravel COMBARIOLLES of very high quality.
Since then they have constantly to keep working in the footsteps of Jean-Pierre Jullien to produce great wines, natural wines that reflect the complexity of the soil and the balance of which allows them to age with great quality. The estate has 11 ha of vineyards and produces 40,000 bottles a year.
