Maury in southern France has a 2,000 year old wine heritage and is a renowned hotspot for “thunderously powerful Grenache” (Andrew Jefford). It takes the form of either weighty red table wines or, like this, gloriously sweet fortified wines or Vins Doux Naturels. La Font del Bosc is not unlike port – rich, sweet and complex with a unique character derived from the ancient Grenache vines that eke out a living on the region’s stony vineyards. Our winemaker Mark Hoddy loved it so much he took the 2009 vintage back to our Bordeaux cellar, Le Chai au Quai, to nurture it every step of the way as it slowly aged to mellow perfection in barrel. La Font del Bosc is a meal in itself. Sip slowly and enjoy solo or with rich puddings, cheese or nuts.
