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.

Julien Montagne makes complex wines that truly represent his vineyards and his Catalan roots; when drinking them, you can almost feel the Mediterranean sun beaming on your face. Deep purple in color, this gorgeous blend of Grenache and Syrah shows intense aromas of baked black fruits, wild herbs and spice. The palate is full-bodied and concentrated with juicy fruit flavors and a strong mineral core balanced by soft, mouth-coating tannins and a discrete yet still lively acidity. The finish is persistent and refined, enticing you back to the glass for another flavor-packed sip. Elegant, balanced and dramatic, Julien Montagne doesn't hide his wine behind masks; he employs no tricks. This is a wine made in the vineyards — truly authentic. Enjoy with BBQ meats, lamb or beef.
