Domaine De La Coume Du Roy Maury 1998 is a deep, dark garnet colour with just a suggestion of terracotta. On the nose are aromas of ultra ripe black cherry and blackberry, fig jam, nuts and a dusting of cocoa. These carry through onto the palate, where the sweet fruit flavours are balanced by fresh acidity and plenty of velvety tannins. As the beginnings of a tuilé ("tile" or brick) colouration indicate, the palate has begun to develop a hint of the rancio (nutty, oxidised) character that comes from prolonged periods of barrel ageing. Rich, long and complex.

The Domaine De La Coume Du Roy Maury 1998 is made from the best parcels of fruit from 20-50 year old Grenache Noir vines, planted in vineyards of black schist soils with a southern and southeastern exposure. Yields were 15 hectolitres per litre.

After harvesting, the grapes were destemmed and, after three weeks of maceration, were gently pressed in a pneumatic bladder press. Fortification stopped the fermentation, and the wine was matured for 18 months in stainless steel vats before being transferred into old oak tuns for further ageing. It was bottled with a residual sugar level of 102g/l.
