In the foothills of the Pyrénées Mountains, not far from the Mediterranean sea, Clos del Rey is situated in the center of almost 900 acres in the tiny village of Maury. The estate has been owned and farmed by the Montagne family since 2001. The vineyard itself is nestled among a protected area of garrigues (rosemary, thyme, cistus.) Vines of up to 120 years of age are allowed to grow natural and untrained, in the old-fashioned way, known as the goblet/bush style. Though, it is what lies beneath the vineyard that lends much of the character and complexity found in their wines. An abandoned iron mine resides on the property, imparting red and orange hues to the soils of Clos del Rey, as well as a soft minerality and silky mouthfeel to the wines.

The Clos del Rey Côtes du Roussillon Village is a gorgeous blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah. Deep purple, almost opaque in color, this wine is big and bold with an abundance of deep, dark fruit tinged with spice, mouth-coating tannins and mind-bending concentration and richness. This wine is a dead ringer for a Priorat, rivaling the famed Catalonian wine region in both quality and value.
