Le Clot de l'Origine | Maury Dessert Wine (500mL)

Dark cherries dipped in chocolate

Skip to product information

A dessert wine to top all dessert wines! Made from old vine Grenache grapes in Southern France, this plush after-dinner beauty is straight up dark cherries dipped in chocolate. The average Maury dessert wine comes in around 120 grams per liter of residual sugar; Marc’s comes in at just over half of that amount. So for a sweet, dessert wine, this one is still restrained and goes head to head with some of the best Ruby Ports we’ve tried. Dark richness of coffee, cocoa and roasted nuts, all topped with black cherry reduction. Insanely delicious.

Their Cred

Winemaker Marc Barriot has been producing wines in Roussillon since 2004. He sought out ancient vines and uses traditional practices to deliver some truly distinctive wines. Marc uses biodynamic methods, even plowing by horse, and uses minimal sulfur in his winemaking. The village of Maury was most famous for producing rich dessert wines made in a fortified wine style similar to port. Generally one of the warmest regions in France, it is ideally suited for producing said dessert wines. Marc originally wasn’t interested in producing sweet wine but his wife said, "if you live in Maury you need to make a Maury." And thank goodness they did!
