Very old vines – former Bordeaux winemaker
After spending some time as a winemaker in a Grand Cru estate in Bordeaux, Dimitri Glipa decided to settle in the heart of Roussillon in order to turn his hand to making fortified wines. He opted to take on the running of the Mudigliza estate in the sought after micro-appellation of the Fenouillèdes. Like many talented producers in the area, Dimitri cultivates extremely old vines that are situated at high altitude. The ‘Maury’ is arguably the pick of his range – a very rich, sweet fortified red wine with prune, mocha, caramel and herb flavours, an absolutely superb partner to chocolate desserts or strong cheeses.
A fabulous alternative to Port, lower in alcohol, higher in acidity but bursting with really ripe black fruit flavours. Made with 100% Grenache then fortified, this will be the perfect match to rich chocolate desserts.
