Mas d'Agamas, Grenache, IGP Saint-Guilhem-le-Desert, 2019

Flagrant purple. Dramatically open and ripe, showing sweet strawberries but also the crunch of redcurrants. Just a little tannin, but gorgeously juicy. Don't be put off by the highish alcohol - one isn't aware of it. Now-2023Vincent... Read More

Languedoc-Roussillon

Mas d'Agamas

Young Vincent Visseq studied winemaking in Montpellier and went on to work at Chateau Capion, a grand estate near Mas du Daumas Gassac.

As with many young French winemakers, he also chose to broaden his experience in Australia, where he was able to vinify one vintage in the Goulburn Valley, working with Marsanne and Syrah in particular.

In 2009 he...

Grenache / Garnacha 

Grenache grows well in hot, dry regions, though it can develop very high (15 degrees+) alcohol.

As such it is grown principally in Southern France and Spain (as Garnacha). It is usually blended with other varieties in the Southern Rhône and Languedoc (Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Cinsaut and others).

Its flavour usually encompasses the...

Mas d'Agamas, Grenache, IGP Saint-Guilhem-le-Desert, 2019

Flagrant purple. Dramatically open and ripe, showing sweet strawberries but also the crunch of redcurrants. Just a little tannin, but gorgeously juicy. Don't be put off by the highish alcohol - one isn't aware of it. Now-2023

Vincent Visseq's story is similar to that of so many of our French partners. His family had been supplying grapes to three local co-operatives since the 1970s, but Vincent decided he wanted to make wine himself. Having studied winemaking in Montpellier and with experience at Château Capion, a grand local estate, and a vintage in the Goulburn Valley in Australia under his belt, he has been steadily taking back the family vines since 2009 as the grape selling contracts expire.

Vincent believes in a simple and precise regime: working hard in the vineyard, harvesting solely by hand, cosseting the bunches and putting all his wines into stainless steel tanks only. Some of his wines are IGPs made from single varieties but our favourite amongst his reds is his Terrasses du Larzac, where the rules of the appellation demand at least three grape varieties in a blend.
