Château Saint-Roch 2014 Kerbuccio Maury Sec Rouge
50% Grenache Noir, 30% Syrah, 20% Mourvédre | Alc: % – Earthy and Spicy
Maury, Languedoc Roussillon, France
“A blend of 50% Syrah, 30% Mourvedre and 20% Carignan that was aged in 50% new demi-muids, the 2014 Kerbuccio Maury Sec has an inky color to go with lots of upfront black raspberry, cassis, licorice, wilder herbs and violet-like aromas and flavors. Coming all from the black schist soils of the newly created Maury Sec AOC, this full-bodied, sexy, supple and yet still fresh and lively 2014 will drink nicely on release and have 4-5 years or evolution. I don’t think it has the depth of the 2013, but it’s not far off.
Jean-Marc Lafage’s Maury-based estate, Saint Roch pulls from vines planted on the black schist soils around Maury, but ALSO from the more cooler, more granite-dominated terroirs around the villages of Lesquerde and Saint Paul de Fenouillet. As I stated last year, these wines represent incredible values.” 90-93 Pts – The Wine Advocate
