Domaine Depeyre, Côtes du Roussillon Villages Tradition, 2015

From about 50% Syrah, 25% Grenache and 25% Carignan, grown on black schist vineyards near the village of Cases-de-Pène. Deep purple. Slightly roasted nose, with hints of cassis and leather. Consistent on the palate: a really smooth and rich mouthful of black fruit - mainly blackcurrant with a fresh bite of acidity. Concentrated, not in the least jammy, a very typical and rewarding Roussillon red. Now-2021

Serge Depeyre, from a Rhône wine-making family, and Brigitte Bile, from Cases de Pène, met at wine-making college in Avignon in 1995. Together they returned to her birthplace, and initially worked at Mas Amiel, while starting the purchase of their own vineyards with 4 hectares in 1997, their small cellar in Cases-de-Pène in 2000, and producing their first wine in 2002. Serge’s day job is working as Régisseur, effectively estate manager and overseer in charge of Clos des Fées (one of the most highly rated and hugely expensive Roussillon estates) at Vingrau, and their own little domaine has grown to 12 hectares, largely looked after by Brigitte. Hearing them, one senses how hard it is to be a grower among these arid, wind-blasted hills: they need a pick-axe in order to plant a vine; they plough using a mule; and yields are ludicrously low.
