La Crau de Ma Mere comes from a selection of very old vines located in the Crau vineyard site to the northeast of the appellation and is listed in the Grenache Conservatory.
It is a very concentrated wine with a lot
of character that matches well with meat,
game as well as milky and fatty cheese.
Blend: 70% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah
"Bright violet color. High-pitched, floral aromas of crushed dark berries. Suave and supple, with an enticing sweetness and graceful berry, cherry and garrigue flavors that build impressively through the finish. Lovely, balanced wine."

"The best of the group is the 2004 La Crau de Ma Mere, which is full-bodied, has more opulence, deeper fruit, but loads of black cherry and licorice notes intertwined with hints of seaweed, roasted herbs, and smoke. It is a real beauty. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.
As I have written in the past, all three cuvees from Pere Pape are Provencal in their typicity. In short, they are up-front and delicious, with forward fruit and plenty of character/personality. I don’t think they will make old bones by any means, as they are clearly designed for immediate consumption, or aging for up to a decade in the case of their top cuvee, Le Crau de Ma Mere. The 2004s have turned out to be richly fruity, forward wines of medium weight as well as pure, spicy, and heady."
