Jeb Dunnuck - The Rhone Report:

"Most of the wine produced in this area is fortified sweet wine, and the 2012 Kerbuccio is from the newly created appellation of Maury Sec, which is a classification above Cotes du Roussillon Villages. From pure black schist soils, this blend of 40% Syrah, 30% Mourvedre and 30% Grenache aged in concrete offers wonderful flowery notes (violets) intermixed with melted chocolate, kirsch and a hint of Provencal garrigue. Full-bodied, rich, deep and totally dry, this is a seriously endowed, fleshy, full-throttle red to drink over the next 3-4 years." (11/13)

Product Description:

WINERY:
"Purchased by Jean Marc Lafage, Chateau Saint Roch is located in the Maury Area of the Agly Valley, which is 15 miles from Perpignan and the Mediterranean Sea. The castle of Queribus, built by the Cathars, at the top of the steep Corbières Mountain watches over the vineyards from the north. Each plot is now surrounded by black berry bushes, fig trees, pomegranate trees, cherry trees, carob trees, oaks, as well as fields of thyme, lavender and fennel."

"The wind here, the 'Tramontane', circulates in this corridor between Fenouilledes and Corbieres. The southern Catalan sun takes advantage of the refractive qualities of the schist from this ancient icy plateau to give Saint- Roch its unique light. 'Kerbuccio' is derived from the Latin translation for the Queribus castle overlooking the vineyard. Maury, previously restricted to fortified wines, has been granted to market dry wines under the appellation Maury Sec since the 2011 vintage." -Importer
