Domaine du Mas Blanc Banyuls Diademe de la Coume d'el Mas Wine
From a tiny, roasted parcel within what is perhaps the most prized of all of Domaine du Mas Blanc's vineyards, Coume del Mas, the Banyuls Rimage ‘Diadème de la Coume’ 2008 has been produced in just two vintages and is notable for its diffident, smoky character, thought to be the result of ash from an adjacent fire. Its east-facing, 1.5-hectare vineyard sits at 350 meters altitude, overlooking the sea. Soils are the classic poor brown schist and decayed shale, and yields are just 15 hl/ha.
The Diadème de la Coume is 90% Grenache noir, 5% Mourvèdre and 5% Syrah. Hand-harvested from old gobelet vines, vinification is traditional: the grapes are trodden by foot and fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel tank. Aged in cask for 13 months prior to bottling, it is simultaneously more concentrated and more refined that the Rimage normale. Enjoy with creamy blue-veined cow’s milk cheeses, with nuts and dark chocolates. Best served at cellar temperature.
