Regular price £17.45

Tax included.

Cotes Catalan is possibly one of the most exciting and understated IGPs in the Languedoc and even in the whole of the South of France. Stretching from the base of the Pyrenees down to the Mediterranean coast it covers a range of Mediterranean terroirs surrounded by garrigue-covered hills and poor, dry soils. The hot climate, with low annual rainfall, ensures that the native varieties of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Rousanne, Viogner and Carignan ripen with concentration and power, whilst a fresh breeze up from the Med and down from the mountains ensures freshness and acidity. In the best sites, old vines and schistous soils, produce intensely mineral, flavourful and powerful reds and whites unlike any others.

Domaine Modat is a modest 23 hectares of vines found in the commune of Cassagnes in the Agly Valley, 30km due west of Perpignan and 200-300m above sea level. Upon founding the estate in 2007, Philippe Modat has worked the vines organically (achieved certification in 2014) and biodynamically (not yet certified) and having moved back to working as a lawyer he has left it in the safe hands of his dynamic and hard working sons (all by the way under the age of 30). The vineyards themselves are composed predominantly of well drained Gneiss, in which are grown indigenous red and white Roussillon varieties - including 115-year-old Carignan. In the last 10 years they have built a modern carbon neutral winery and embraced biodynamic viticulture, working with restrained extraction, fermentation on wild yeasts and as little sulphur as possible.

Tasting note: Direct and firm nose of birght red cherry; raspberry; pink grapefruit and rose petals. The pallet has immediate high acidity with soft; textured red fuit; vanilla and some more lively lemon and grapefruit notes to keep the body in check. Raspberry; peaches and vanilla on the finish with scintilating acidity till the end. Moreish and textured.
Winemaking Detail: Hand-picked; destemmed and arefully sorted. Maceration at low temperatures for three days; followed by temperature controlled fermentation on wild yeast with gentle punching down (18 - 20 days).
