Thunevin-Calvet Maury Vin Doux Naturel

Thunevin-Calvet Maury Vin Doux Naturel 1998

Maury, Roussillon, South of France, FranceJancisRobinson.com describes Maury as Banyuls' inland cousin. The two expressive regions are positioned on either side of the lesser Rivesaltes and Muscat de Rivesaltes areas. This is an impressive dessert wine from its slightly rancio, nutty nose, through its authentic tawny colour, to its sweet chocolate, cherry, black raspberry, coffee notes that expand across a silky-smooth palate, sporting a reasonable 16.5 percent alcohol. Tawny-like for those of you who enjoy port, and similarly it's probably as good as it gets the day it's bottled. Tasty. I suggest nutty cakes or well-aged cheese.Tasted: 25 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 46.99 BCLS Producer: Thunevin-CalvetDistributors: Dandurand
