Concentrated nose of ripe yellow peach, vanilla, acacia and honeysuckle. The palate is immediately soft and luscious and makes you think of peach melba yogurt, mango and pear puree. There is gentle soft sweet spice (vanilla, cloves and cinnamon) on the finish, which goes on and on.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Domaine Modat’s 23 hectares of vines are located in the commune of Cassagnes, in the prized Agly Valley near Perpignan. Domaine Modat officially converted to organic agriculture in March 2011 and is in the process of converting the vineyard to biodynamic production. Instead of using herbicides, the soil is worked and plowed to encourage the natural processes of breakdown and regeneration. The domaine’s respect for the environment is also reflected in the practice of the “minimal interference” farming method. The soil is mostly white, gray and red gneiss (granitic sand) over a base of fractured granitic rock, an ideal terroir for elegant wines. The well-drained soil gives the red wines fine, silky tannins, a light structure and great freshness. The terroir is also well-suited for the grape varieties used to make quality dry white wines.
Production Notes
Hand harvested, light direct pressing at low temperature with light settling. Temperature-controlled fermentation on wild yeasts in stainless steel tanks.
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 started 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.
