Details

IGP Cotes Catalanes Alexandria Domaine Matassa, zero-sulphur, natural, orange wine, ripe, leesy, spicy Muscat of Alexandria - fascinating wine from the South of France. Alexandria – from the Muscat of Alexandria is a little know variety, that here undergoes thirty-day maceration in whole bunches. Fermented naturally in cement and then allowed to rest on the lees before being bottled without fining or filtration and zero added sulphur. This is a wonderful wine, with the Muscat providing ripe apple, perfume and subtle spice and minerality, complete with a leesy, rich texture but lovely freshness on the finish.

In 2001 Tom Lubbe purchased a small, hillside vineyard high up in the hills of the Coteaux du Fenouillèdes, in the Roussillon region of France, called Clos Matassa, planted with old-vine Carignan. Soils are schist and slate surrounded by garrigue. Tom employs biodynamic methods, aiming to be as natural as possible, only adding a bit of sulphur at bottling. Because of the high altitude, the growing season here is longer, which gives better fruit development. He makes a superb Carignan, as well as other blends using local grape varities such as Grenache Gris and Maccabeu.
