Crushed & Cured

Mas d'Agamas, Terrasses du Larzac, Nostre Mescladis, 2021


Nostre Mescladis translates as “our blend”: from Grenache, Carignan, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsaut, approximately in proportion to the grape varieties in the Visseq family’s vineyards. Unoaked, it’s aged in concrete, which adds a wonderful textured element to it. A huge hit of garrigue on the nose with bramble fruit and slight note of pepper. This is very classy and packed full of fruit.

Vincent Visseq's story is similar to that of so many of our French partners. His family had been supplying grapes to three local cooperatives since the 1970s, but Vincent decided he wanted to make wine himself. Having studied winemaking in Montpellier and with experience at Château Capion, a grand local estate, and a vintage in the Goulburn Valley in Australia under his belt, he has been steadily taking back the family vines since 2009 as the grape selling contracts expire.
