Left outside in glass demijohns for a year, this wine spent the subsequent 44 years in oak barrels before being bottled. As you would expect, this has created a finely textured and incredibly honed fortified style that Maury is famous for. And Mas Amiel makes some of the very best.
Like the ever-shifting sands of time, layers of flavour flit by, sometimes reappearing in a different dimension altogether. Raisins, prunes, cocoa and toasted nuts offer an initial burst of Port-like aromas. Plums, damsons and sweet spices evolve into orange peel, figs and fresh tobacco. As with the very essence of time itself, the flavours are never-ending
Awarded 18/20 by La Revue du Vin de France:
"The old Maury are magnificent: the rare 1969, melted and voluptuous, is highly complex" La Revue du Vin de France, 2014 Edition
