Pompier is our latest cuvée sourced from the black, stoney vineyards of Maury. It is 100% Grenache – partly aged in concrete with a smaller percentage spending time maturing in French oak barrels. We bottle this wine earlier than Le Nain Violet and the resulting wine is full of crunchy red fruit while maintaining much of the seductive, luscious character so typical of the wines of this village. A complex yet immediately enjoyable wine – great for all occasions.

“The all-Grenache 2020 IGP Cotes Catalanes Pompier offers up gentle loam and spice notes—cinnamon, clove and allspice—then black cherries and a hint of licorice. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it finishes long, with velvety tannins and a touch of warmth. Drink it over the next several years.” 91 points – Joe Czerwinski – The Wine Advocate (March 2023)
