MAS MONTEL, Aspères
Located in Aspères, near Montpellier, the estate is owned and run by brothers Dominique and Jean-Philippe Granier. The soils of the 40-ha vineyards, known as Terres de Sommières, are varied, they consist of mainly red clay, limestone and pebbles and the site is well exposed to the sun and to the local winds (tramontane, mistral, marin). The Granier’s style is for juicy, approchable wines exhibiting charming fruit.
Petite Syrah is a wine made from young Syrah vines, it has lovely, deep flavours of ripe plum, stewed red berries and light spices on the nose. The palate is richly textured and juicy with jammy blackberries, strawberry and cherry balanced by vivid freshness and soft tannins.
