2018 Grenache Rouge La Loupe, Maurel Vedeau, Languedoc, France
Maison Maurel Vedeau was created from the partnership of two experienced viticulturists and winemakers, Stephane Vedeau and Alain Maurel. Now under the ownership of Bonfils, the winemaking expertise and skilled viticultural disipline is maintained from the winery and estate vineyards at La Baume. The range of varietal and generic Languedoc wines are immaculate; immediately flattering yet true to their terroir. They also benefit from mature vineyards.
La Loupe is a very approachable, fruit-driven red made from Grenache, grown in the Mediterranean vineyards of the Languedoc, an area well known for its ideal climate conditions. It is hot during the day and cooler at night enabling the vines to mature fruit well, whilst the Mistral and Tramontane winds help keep the vines healthy and low-yielding. Modern winemaking ensures ripe summer fruit flavours are well balanced. The nose is peppery with herbal scents and juicy ripe fruit flavours typical of the Languedoc, together with a smooth texture and supple, mouthfilling finish.
A great accompaniment for simple meat dishes such as pizzas, pasta or chicken salads. Also enjoy it on its own as an aperitif or receiption wine.
13.5% ABV. Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.
