Thunevin-Calvet 1985 Maury Vin Doux Naturel
|Availability:||In stock (3)|
‘Vins Doux Naturels’ (VDNs) or naturally sweet wines, dates to the 13th century and is rooted in the South of France. Similar to Port, VDNs are fortified with a neutral grape spirit before fermentation is complete, retaining some sugar perceived as sweetness. This Domaine was born in 2001 with the collaboration of two winegrowers: Jean-Luc Thunevin and Jean-Roger Calvet. However, it is quite rare to stumble upon an older vintage of VDNs, from the village of Maury. This offering from 1985 is made from 100% Grenache, bursting deep flavours of black cherry, purple plum and dark raspberry with a hint of coffee, nuts and sweet chocolate. Drink now or age for another 100 years.
