On the nose the wine shows heady aromas of briny black olives, violets, and black pepper. The wine is dark in the glass with deep notes of spice, cassis, and a touch of funk framed by firm tannins and salty mineral acidity. An elegant wine that's delicious, this makes for compelling drinking.

The vines at Mas Coutelou are beautifully taken care of and all by hand. The vinification is meticulous and adapted every season; short or long maceration, carbonic maceration, punching down or pumping all depends on the vintage and variety. Selected yeasts have never been used and the use of SO2 is limited, or non-existent in some years when it is possible. The bottling is done at the estate, without filtration and by gravity, a final but very important mark of quality. Today Jean Francois farms 14 hectares of vines, as well as a few hundred olive trees that protect his vines.
