“Mas Amiel, in new hands since 2000, is the most famous producer of Maury which, at 16.5 percent, is less potent than port…This wine is more raisiny and, being based on Grenache rather than Portuguese grapes, is lighter in color and altogether gentler...A great partner for chocolate.” — Jancis Robinson.com
Mas Amiel dessert wines: Delicious decadence
1.5.2010
Mas Amiel’s fine vintage wines are made from 100% Grenache, farmed biodynamically from very old vines which yield a miniscule amount of fruit—some 25 hl/ha. The aging process at Mas Amiel is fascinating: wines are first fortified, and then placed in large glass demi-johns outdoors to age for a year. After this, the wines are transferred to oak vats to age for five to 20 years. continue reading >>

Mas Amiel Maury Cuvee 6 Ans d'Age
Mas Amiel Maury Cuvee 6 Ans d'Age
France / Languedoc-Roussillon
The richness of Grenache raised on pure schist soils comes through in notes of dark chocolate, sea salt and boysenberry tart. Wonderfully fresh and lively, however, on the tongue—profound and layered flavors evolve slowly in the glass.

Mas Amiel Cotes de Roussillon Rosé Le Plaisir 2009
Mas Amiel Cotes de Roussillon Rosé Le Plaisir 2009
France / Languedoc-Roussillon
The name says it all. This “pleasure” rosé gets its serious spice and precision from the region's schist soils and howling winds that pour from the nearby Pyrenees. 100% Grenache Noir; this rosé delivers both wind-swept freshness along with good structure, which makes it indispensible with Mediterranean-inspired fare. (Tapas, anyone?)

Mas Amiel Notre Terre Côtes du Roussillon-Villages 2008
Mas Amiel Notre Terre Côtes du Roussillon-Villages 2008
France / Languedoc-Roussillon
The foothills of the Pyrenees, at the western border between Spain and France, are a rocky, windswept area that appears more suitable for mountain goats than people—or certainly, vines. Here "soils" are pitch black schist stones that crunch underfoot; the winds can blow up to 100 miles an hour. If you'd expect red wine from the region to be rich and powerful and a little wild, you'd be right. This great blend ("notre terre" means "our earth" in French) of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan grapes is concentrated and savory; a perfect pair for a barbecued steak.
