Mas D’Amile Le Petitou 2018


Mas D’Amile Le Petitou

Originally, this was to be a rosé, but Amélie didn’t like the result, so she decided to make a lighter, more elegant and refreshing red. The Grenache and Syrah come from her highest hillside parcels, which are windswept sites of very dense limestone with very little clay, giving the wine intense aromatics. The Carignan comes from a lower site and gives color as well as acidity. The wine sings of its Mediterranean heritage, rich with licorice and tapenade in a long, lean, tension-filled profile. And check out its refreshingly low alcohol!

Delicate, elegant, fruity and light. A real treat served cool as an apéritif through to dessert!

The label was designed by her daughter Gabrielle and son Paul (then six and four respectively) with help from friends. That, plus the fact that the cuvée is the most recent in the domaine’s range, accounts for the name Petitou–in spirit, the little one.

Production averages 7,500 bottles.
