Dom Brial ‘Mirade’ GSM 2021

21.25

Description

A special cuvée from Dom Brial whose vineyards lie between the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees, protected by cool mountain ranges on one side and fresh ocean breezes on the other.

This is a terroir wine, a three grape blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre from a single terroir, Hautes Terrasses — clay terraces with a proliferation of round stones — with no oak involved in the winemaking, just 12 months maturation in steel with further development in bottle.

Gorgeously dark in colour, a deep purple-red, the nose is jam-packed with blackcurrant, blackberries and dried fruits, prunes and dates, with prominent herbal characters and earthy notes. The palate is rich in fruit, layers of summer berries and dried black fruit, with a fine tannin structure and minerally texture, hints of smokey meats and fruitcake, and a lithe, precise finish.

Producer: Dom Brial

Set in one of the most beautiful regions of France, Dom Brial was established in 1923 in the town of Baixas, between the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees near Perpignan. The vineyards are Mediterranean in climate, protected by the cool mountain ranges on one side and the fresh ocean breezes on the other. Between the sea, the mountains and the vineyards, there is beauty all around here.

The winery was established by a handful of winegrowers coming together in the face of a major viticultural crisis at the time, expanding quickly through their solidarity and financial stability. Today the cooperative represents almost 250 growers cultivating over 2,000 hectares of vineyards in the Côtes du Roussillon.

The patchwork of terroirs, and scope for planting varietals most suited to the local microclimate, allows for the production of a range of wine styles, from high quality table wines, to super cuvées, to the natural sweet wines of Rivesaltes.
