Following Michel Bettane’s comment on our Maury 2004 from Domaine Calvet-Thunevin, another fantastic comment was published in Thuriès Gastronomie : “successful partnership where Jean-Luc Thunevin (Château Valandraud in Saint Emilion) shows his passion for wines from the Roussillon and Maury. With 80 years old vines and very low yields, the talented duo is offering a 2004 vintage (no fining, no filtering) with incredible depth. Starting with a fresh and strong robe, without a trace of evolution. The nose reveals a terroir of schist and subtle notes of hot stones underlined by ripe and fleshy fruits. Fine fragrances of soft spices make this elegant ensemble more complex. Full palate while still remaining light. Deliciously balanced liqueur, pulpy texture and firm at the same time, fruity and long retro olfaction. It is a total success. Excellent aging prospects. Enthusiastic special selection.”
