Mas d'Agalis - Navis 2017
A serious, structured red from Southern France. This Mourvedre & Grenache dominant blend went through strict selection of the best bunches, was made in an infusion style for a delicate expression, and was aged in barrels for 18 months. The result is a wine that is drinking beautifully now but will keep improving. Potent aromatic of red fruits and wild herbs, a medium/structured body, and a complex, long finish. Made by Lionel Maurel, a fourth generation grower who took over the family vines after stints working with some of the biggest names in the natural wine world across France. He primarily works with an 'infusion' style of winemaking, favouring gentle and light extractions as opposed to the more powerful examples that are common in this region. His wine are delicate, elegant, and fresh, real expressions of his immediate subzone and soils.
