"One of the blockbusters in the vintage is unquestionably the 2015 Maury Sec Serge & Nicolas. Made from the usual blend of 60% Grenache, 28% Syrah and 12% Carignan that was brought up primarily in tank, it has awesome notes of blackberries, licorice, crushed rocks and violets. With off the charts purity, full-bodied richness and finely polished tannin, it’s guaranteed to put a smile on your face over the coming 5-7 years."
After 27 years importing wine, HPS President Dan Kravitz took the plunge and purchased 13.5 acres of vineyard land in Roussillon. Named Cabirau after the vineyard’s original designation, the domaine lies on a hill below the famed Cathar fortress of Queribus. Planted to Grenache, it includes a prized 3.5 acre parcel of 60 year-old vines.
Named “SERGE & NICOLAS” after vigneron Serge Soulatge (who tends to Dan’s vines) and winemaker Nicolas Burger of the VTV cooperative (of which Dan is now a full-fledged member!)
The softness of Grenache is balanced by the mineral backbone extracted from the schistous soils. The Syrah and Carignan add pronounced spicy and peppery components. Intense yet subtle…" - Importer
