Mas d'Agamas, Terrasses du Larzac, Nostre Mescladis, 2017

Mas d'Agamas, Terrasses du Larzac, Nostre Mescladis, 2016

"Still very dark purple despite this wine's age. Round, supple, throbbing sweet, mulberry-flavoured fruity start in which no single ingredient dominates. That long maceration manifests itself in the deep colour and, on the finish, marked tannins. Food needed with this, which could be a delight with a barbecue. 16+/20", Jancis Robinson, MW, jancisrobinson.com, 8th May 2020

Nostre Mescladis translates as "our blend", reflecting the approximate proportions of his vines across the family vineyards: about 40% Grenache, and 20% of each of Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan, all given a long maceration to develop great depth of flavour but vinified and bottled entirely unoaked. As the previous vintage, unalloyed pleasure: velvety, textured and stimulating, with delicious flavours of black fruit and spice. Cracking wine for any red meat dish. Now-2022

Vincent Visseq’s story is similar to that of so many of our French partners. His family had been supplying grapes to three local cooperatives 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 (see also his Mourvèdre rosé) 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.
