Winemaker Notes

The historic cuvée of Jean-Pierre Jullien, L'Infidèle is a blend of all the regional grapes – Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Carignan. Choices are made in the vineyard and in the cellar that will emphasize finesse and freshness in this bottling, allowing for full expression of the fruit.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

As usual, a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Carignan, Cinsault, the Cal Demoura 2008 Coteaux du Languedoc Terrasses du Larzac L’Infidele displays ripe black raspberry and cassis shadowed by their distilled counterparts; smoky black tea; resinous herbs; and low-toned suggestions of roasted red meats. There is clarity and refinement here as well as an infectious juiciness – over and beyond the wine’s ample richness and fine tannins – which Goumard is inclined to attribute in part to the introduction of a sorting table, though it surely has something to do with the character of the vintage as well. This long-finishing blend is likely to remain fascinating and delicious for the better part of a decade, though I would by no means spurn its youthful charms.

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.

Known for bold reds, crisp whites, and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place the primary emphasis upon its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally warm to hot. In the center of the country lies a vast, dry plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought. Because of its location on the Iberian Peninsula, many of Spain’s wine regions are located on or near the milder coast, either of the Bay of Biscay to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the northwest, or the Mediterranean sea to the south and east. Each of these regions has its own unique soil, climate, and topography, as well as principal grape varieties.

In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate, though elsewhere the most popular wines are generally red. Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache), as well as rich, nutty whites from Viura. Ribera del Duero produces opulent, fruity, top-quality wines from almost exclusively Tempranillo. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, blends Garnacha with Cariñena (Carignan) to make bold, full-bodied wines with a hint of earthiness. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez. Since the 1990s, international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc have been steadily increasing in importance in several regions.

Beyond the usual suspects, there are hundreds of red grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are regional indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent wines on their own, while others are better suited for use as blending grapes. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics and aroma and flavor profiles, offering much to be discovered by the curious wine lover. In particular, Portugal, Italy, and Greece are known for having a multitude of unique varieties.
