‘Les Vignes des Amis’, Mas Gabriel

£17.99

Less than 1000 bottles of this new red from our friends the Cores in Caux were produced.
Produced exclusively from Cinsault grapes, more often blended or used to make rosé wines, this is a slightly lighter, easier-drinking style of red than the Mas Gabriel stalwarts (Trois Terrasess and Clos des Lièvres). The east-facing vineyard is just outside the village at 120m altitude, with loamy soils containing basalt and gravel. The grape bunches are de-stemmed and not crushed before traditional fermentation and tank ageing for a few months before bottling. The nose is expressive with wild blackberries, black cherry and floral notes. The palate is round and tender, with very fine tannins.

Mas Gabriel

Deborah and Peter Core are an English couple who left London in September 2002 with a dream to own a small vineyard in France. After studying viticulture and winemaking in New Zealand, they moved to Languedoc at the end of 2004. After a two year search they bought Mas Gabriel a small domaine of exceptional terroir near Pezenas. These are not wines which leap out from the list but are well worth some attention. They are great examples of the Languedoc ‘nouvelle vague’.
Vineyard size 6 hectares. Organic since 2009.mas-gabriel-deborah-peter-core-1
