Terrasses du Larzac, Mataro, Mas des Brousses - 2018

It seems that one always comes back to one's origins. And this is in a way what Xavier Peyraud (his family runs the domaineTempier, in Bandol) does, helped by his wife Géraldine Combes. Their Mataro cuvée gives pride of place to Mourvèdre (70% of the blend) and expresses all the nobility of this grape variety, complemented by others, in the land of Larzac, with a noble wine that smells good of spices and Havana. Great! Guide Vert RVF: 94/100

Xavier comes from a family of well-known wine-growers in Bandol (Domaine Tempier), but rather than being yet another Peyraud in Provence, he decided to make Mourvèdre (and other grape varieties) sing in another land. The Mas is made up of nine hectares of vines located in Aniane and Puéchabon, the epicentre of the Golden Triangle of the Hérault. Its neighbours include Mas Daumas Gassac, La Grange des Pères and Montcalmès, which is also a close neighbour. The soils are ploughed sparingly and the cultivation is organic, even certified as of the 2019 vintage. To speak only of the reds of the estate, which also produces an aromatic white and a vinous rosé, they are marked by the combination of a deep vinosity and maturity, without losing a freshness due to the terroir as much as to the local climate, which induces thermal amplitudes that are unique in the Languedoc, not to say in France.
