The Winery, Image from La Coume del Mas

I emailed La Coume del Mas last week asking for additional information about 2004 Schistes and 2003 Quadratur and for any additional images. Andy Cook emailed back this week.  Andy Cook joined La Coume del Mas several years ago where he helps out with vinification, sales, English speaking, and technology.  Here is a link to an article Andy wrote for Tom Cannavan’s Wine Page about La Coume del Mas back in 2006.  It is always a joy to receive correspondance from a winery.  I will do my best to get ahold of the current vintages from European Cellars.

“Schistes 2004 is 100% Grenache Noir, tank fermented with a total maceration time of 3-4 weeks. The grapes are hand-harvested and hand-sorted upon arrival in the winery. They are destemmed and crushed into tank. The wine is 100% wild yeast ferment and ferments at around 28C. The wine is pressed and aged in tank with no racking. It is bottled after 6-8 months.”

“Quadratur 2003 is 50% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 20% Carignan. This cuvée is from our oldest vines, higher in altitude and away from the sea. The Carignan vines are over 100 years old. As for Schistes, the grapes are hand picked and sorted. The 3 varietals are vinified separately. There is longer maceration and more extraction work on this wine (punchdowns and pumping over). Once pressed, the wine is aged in barrel for 12-14 months in 225l French barriques (around 30% new oak).”
