In a commitment to innovation and respect for consumers, Lurton produced a sulphur-free Côtes du Roussillon at the Mas Janeil winery in 2012. Far from a fundamentalist attitude or the “natural” wine movement, it is a pragmatic approach with the objective of making a more “living”, more authentic wine, that is the best possible reflection of its terroir.
The depth of the dark garnet colour with hints of purple suggests subtle aromatic power. The nose immediately offers a fanfare of red fruit (blackcurrants and blueberries) and cherry jam, underscored by floral notes. Very mature on the palate, with a fine balance between well-integrated tannins and freshness. Generous aromatic notes emphasize the wine’s full-bodied character. The precision of the fruit and well-defined aromas linger in a voluptuous, harmonious finish.
