About This Wine
Crafted from 60% Mourvèdre, 20% Syrah and 20% Grenache, the Haut Coustias is the Alary brothers' tour de force; the finest and most distinctive wine of the Domaine. It is made from 65-year-old vines planted in the rocky, limestone rich, blue clay soils (with 40% active limestone), of the Estate's highest plots. The grapes are sorted (three times) and destemmed, and the wine spends 24 months in large 22-hectolitre wooden foudres, reminiscent of those found in the cellars of traditional Barolo producers. This is an extraordinarily fine 2012 release. You can expect a richly perfumed, deep and complex brew with inky, spicy blackcurrant depth, ripe, powdery tannin and a long finish marked by crushed stone and Provençal herbs. A profound, yet fine Haut Coustias, and certainly one of the great Mourvèdre based wines of the world.
