2016 Domaine Cabirau "Serge & Nicolas" Maury Sec

SKU #1349121 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

 Also tasted as a barrel sample, the 2016 Maury Sec Serge & Nicolas checks in as a blend of 63% Grenache, 23% Carignan and 14% Syrah, from 35- to 70-year-old vines that had the Grenache brought up all in tank and the Syrah and Carignan in demi-muids. Notes of strawberries, spice-box, licorice, violets and dried herbs all emerge from this beauty, and it’s medium-bodied, silky and polished, with beautiful purity, solid mid-palate density and building depth and length. There’s just a little over 1,000 cases and is going to be a smoking value.  (9/2017)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2016 Maury Sec Serge & Nicolas will be another terrific vintage from this estate. Checking in as a blend of 63% Grenache, 23% Carignan and the rest Syrah, it has lots of fruit, yet also a clean, crisp, pretty style on the palate. Notes of peppery, sappy herbs, violets and red and black fruits all emerge from this nicely balanced red that’s going to drink nicely on release. (JD)  (4/2017)

K&L Notes

Importer Dan Kravitz sold other people's wines for three decades and decided to take the winemaking plunge in 2007 by purchasing his own vines in the region of Maury, a sub-appellation of Roussillon. Starting with 13.5 acres of Grenache, his holdings have blossomed to 18 acres and now include Syrah and Carignan. All of his vineyards are planted on steep slopes of schist, which translates well to minerality in the wines. The Maury is composed of his oldest Grenache vines on the steepest slopes with the rest made up of Carignan and Syrah.
