Dark, sweet nose of fruits of the forest, currants, cacao nibs and a subtle hint of fresh coffee. The palate is concentrated and silky but still fresh, with an immediate wash of acidity giving way to cooked raspberry, rich strawberries and red plum and even some fresh leather. The tannins are super smooth and juicy with a lovely bitter, smokey note lingering at the end.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Cotes Catalan is possibly one of the most exciting and understated IGPs in the Languedoc and even in the whole of the South of France. Stretching from the base of the Pyrenees down to the Mediterranean coast it covers a range of Mediterranean terroirs surrounded by garrigue-covered hills and poor, dry soils. The hot climate, with low annual rainfall, ensures that the native varieties of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Roussanne, Viogner and Carignan ripen with concentration and power, whilst a fresh breeze up from the Med and down from the mountains ensures freshness and acidity. In the best sites, old vines and schistous soils produce intensely mineral, flavourful and powerful reds and whites unlike any others. The vineyards themselves are composed predominantly of well drained Gneiss, in which are grown indigenous red and white Roussillon varieties - including 115-year-old Carignan. In the last 10 years they have built a modern carbon neutral winery and embraced biodynamic viticulture, working with restrained extraction, fermentation on wild yeasts and as little sulphur as possible.
Production Notes
Gentle destemming, vatting, cold pre-fermentation maceration of 24 hours to extract the fruit, thermoregulated fermentation and maceration, light punching down (18 to 24 days depending on the tank). Aged in stainless steel vats.
Winemaker Notes
Domaine Modat represents a return to winemaker Philippe Modat’s Catalan roots, where his grandfather once owned vineyards. While studying law in Bordeaux, Philippe developed a passion for wine that set him on a journey to founding his own domaine. In 2007, he and his father purchased land and vines in Cassagnes village in the heart of the Roussillon. In September 2008, they built a modern winery using eco-friendly organic materials equipped with thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks and new oak barrels. The estate is now run by his two sons.
