Winemaker Notes

The softness of Grenache is balanced by the mineral backbone extracted from the schistous soils. The Syrah and Carignan add pronounced spicy and peppery components. Intense yet subtle.

Pairs well with the richest and most intricate of meals.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A step up over the straight Côtes du Roussillon release, the semi-opaque 2014 Maury Sec Serge & Nicolas knocks it out of the park with its black raspberry, cassis, toasted bread, crushed rock and candied licorice-like aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, layered and showing the classic 2014 approachable, supple profile, I think it will come in slightly behind the 2011 and 2013, but is still a brilliant wine that plays well above its price point. A blend of 60% Grenache, 28% Syrah and 12% Carignan that comes from the black schist soils located around the village of Maury, its Grenache component was fermented and aged all in tank and the Syrah and Carignan in demi-muids.
Range: 91-93

Wine Spectator
This open-knit red bursts with plum, ripe blackberry and cherry fruit flavors, woven with herb, licorice, spice and mineral accents. Juicy acidity keeps this fresh through the lingering finish, supported by grippy, integrated tannins.

Domaine Cabirau, France
After 27 years in the wine business, Hand Picked Selections President Dan Kravitz took the plunge and purchased 13.5 acres of vineyard land in the Roussillon! The Domaine (taking its name "Cabirau" after the name of the vineyard itself) is in the village of Maury, which will receive its own sub-appellation for Côtes du Roussillon next year. It is planted entirely to Grenache, and is comprised of 12 almost-contiguous parcels on a high stony hill just below the famed old Cathar fortress of Queribus. 10 acres are planted with 20-25 years old vines, with vines in remaining acreage averaging more than 60 years in age.

Maury Wine

Roussillon, France

View all products

A northern point in France’s far southern Roussillon region, Maury is dominated by steep limestone cliffs and the castle of Queribus, which the French used as a defense outpost against the Spanish until 1659. Today it remains an important symbol of the presence of both cultures in the region.

Though Maury is famous for vins doux naturels (a style of fortified wine), Maury dry red wines are quickly becoming more in vogue and received their own appellation designation in 2011, called Maury Sec. As is the case in most of Roussillon, Grenache plays a key role here. The region’s schist-dominant vineyards, which climb up to 1,300 feet, are excellent for the production of Grenache of all styles.

For Maury dry red wines, Carignan, Mourvèdre and Syrah act as blending partners with Granche Noir. In the production of vins doux naturels, Grenache Gris and Blanc play a subsidiary role. The latter are characterized using the same terminology as that in Riveslates with those named as grenat or tuilé based on Grenache Noir and those described as ambré or blanc containing more Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris.

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
