Domaine Coume del Mas, Collioure – BKWine Pick

Coume del Mas, Roussillon

Coume del Mas, Roussillon

Coume del Mas is close to the village Cousprou, between Collioure and Banyuls. The soil is poor, dominated by slate that gives a strong backbone and fresh acidity to the wines. The main grape variety is Grenache.

The property is built up of many small plots acquired over the last ten years by the owner Philippe Gard. Some are close to the sea; others are at 300 m altitude inland, facing east. Here the climate is a bit cooler than by the sea, especially at night. But even the plots close to the sea get a bit of freshness from the sea breezes. The yields are low, very low – only 10 to 15 hl/ha!

The wines are, of course, concentrated.
