Les Vignerons de Maury Solera 1928 Cask no. 803 50cl

15% abv

The casks are each selected by Gerard Gauby. Each year, once wine is drawn from the cask it is replaced with the chosen fortified wines from a single vintage. The cask was first filled in 1928 and only about 1/3 is ever drawn at one time.

“These rich, sticky, deep mahogany wines are what the area has traditionally produced, very sweet, long-aged vins doux naturels from variously-coloured Grenache grapes sun-shrivelled on the bushvines struggling for survival on the arid schists around Maury. That schist gives them great firmness and the long ageing in old casks results in appetising rancio flavours, the decongestant tang that comes from long, hot oak ageing. Alcohol has generally been added at some point to stop fermentation so that alcohol levels are usually around 16 per cent. These are wines to sip at the end of a meal with cheese or chocolate rather than being suitable to drink in quantity. They last well in an opened bottle”.
Jancis Robinson

Dark and alive with Rancio and volatile characters. Rich fruits that dance between tawny port and madeira with baked citrus peel inflections.

Since 1928, the solera in question has been regularly refreshed with the wine of both red and white Grenache grapes, which tend to be picked only after they’ve shriveled beneath Maury's unforgiving sun.
