2018 Mas Coutelou, Vin de France 'CLASSE'

As always the CLASSE is moreish and attractive, and from the super 2018 vintage; this is  a medley of Grenache Syrah and Carignan - Full, deep and vivid this tastes about as natural as a wine can with is forthright charm and soulful depth. Lovely in every way!

Mas Coutelou is located in Puimisson, a commune in the Hérault department of the Languedoc and to the east of Béziers. It's been a winemaking village for over 200 years and most of it's soils are a mix of red clays and limestone.

Today Jean Francois Coutelou farms 14 hectares of vines, as well as a few hundred olive trees. His father planted the first vines back in 1966 and was one of the pioneers of organic viticulture in the Hérault, when there were just seven organic wine growers in the entire department, today the estate is registered with 'Nature et Progrès'.

I adore these wines because they show the benefits of working naturally (terroir, freshness,vitality) and taste extraordinarily delicious. To avoid disappointment, please be quick to get these wines as at their modest prices they will go fast!
