Vincent Visseq and the Mas d’Agamas vineyard

Vincent Visseq is a talented winegrower who manages the Mas d’Agamas vineyard.

Mas d’Agamas is what the Visseq family’s village used to be called at a time when it only consisted of four houses, including theirs. Their winemaking tradition goes back several generations, having spread across the French communes of Lagamas and Montpeyroux.

Since 2009, they have been vinifying two small plots located right next to Lagamas. The family sees it as a way of coming full circle with their work. They make a point of cultivating vines in the most reasonable way, giving prominence to manual tasks. In 2011, two other small plots were added to the estate. But it is the two first ones, of the Mourvèdre variety, that gave birth to the wine that are presenting here today.

Grenache

The robe is deep red. The first nose delivers black fruit aromas, before giving way to flowery scents. This wine has a fruity, supple and round mouthfeel, completed by thin and elegant tannins.

Mourvedre

The robe is purple, and its reflections purplish-blue. Fruits dominate the first nose. Step by step, this wine releases spicy notes and garrigue scent, as well as subtle woody hints. The attack is round, the tannins are silky. The finish is characterised by lengthy aromas mixing ripe fruit and spices.

This wine will make a perfect match to cold, hot meats and game, as well as mature cheese for tastings. While it is already pleasant at its young age, a few years down in the cellar will all but enhance its taste.

Baie Choisie

The robe is purple, and the reflection purplish-blue. At first, the nose is dominated by hints of spice and garrigue, before giving way to more pronounced notes of liquorice and black fruits, and to subtle woody touches. The attack phase delivers a round taste with silky tannins, while the finish is all about finesse, with mixed aromas of ripe fruit and spices.

This wine will make a perfect match to cold or hot meats and mature cheese for tastings. While it is already pleasant at its young age, a few years down in the cellar will all but enhance its taste. Do not forget to open the bottle slightly in advance for optimal tasting. Recommended temperature – around 16°.

All these items are now available in our online shop, as well as in our Clerkenwell store.
