Les Mamettes are the grandmothers who tell us the story of the Catalan region.

They also are the knotted trunks of old Grenache and Carignan vines that have for decades produced local sweet wines and fortified wines.

The fruit of these very old vines are used today to produce the great white wines of the Roussillon.

A way of making something new and modern from something old.

 

VARIETAL

85% Grenache Gris / 15% Carignan Blanc

TASTING

A nuance that catches the eye with pale bright reflections. The noise is of white flowers and the countryside besides the sea, but remains discrete and very fresh. Fresh and lightly salted on the palate but does not lack depth. Once again aromas of lemon, citrus and pineapple with a perfect acidity after-taste.
