Domaine Monplezy
Domaine Monplezy
This estate has been in existence since 1734, and has been in the ownership of the Sutra de Germa family since 1940. Jean Sutra de Germa, a Béziers negociant, began making wines there in 1956. His son Georges took over in 1966 and continued to make the wine until 1995, when the reins were handed to his daughter Anne Sutra de Germa. Anne has been responsible for the winemaking ever since, assisted by her husband Christian Gil.

The estate sits in an enviable position just to the north of Pézenas, with impressive views of the hills of the Haut Languedoc to the north and the Canigou to the south-west and comprises 20 hectares under vine.
The soil is composed variously of clay, limestone, miocene marl and stony gravel and the climate is distinctly Mediterranean. Traditional, sustainable and labour-intensive methods are practiced in the vineyards, coupled with modern, carefully-controlled processes in the winery. The estate is also now fully certified organic. The result is a selection of award-winning white, red and rosé wines, from both Vin de Pays and AOC Pézenas denominations.

Despite the fact that (at the time of writing - March 2015) this is so recently bottled, it is already nicely integrated and really rather delicious. With a clear straw/gold colour, it is zesty, but beautifully rounded, even soft, with the fruit at the orangey rather than lemony end of the spectrum, combined with peachy, spiced apple pie and floral/honeysuckle aromas and flavours, with some nutty notes putting in an appearance after time in the glass. The texture is gently oily, but the overall effect is of a really sprightly, tasty, elegant and beautifully balanced wine, with a splash of limey acidity and even a modicum of grape tannin. A lovely, quintessentially Languedoc white wine.

A bright, limpid cherry red colour, with aromas and flavours which are equally bright, with fresh red currant and berry fruits, candied orange peel and a gentle earthiness, with soft tannins, stony minerality and juicy acidity. Cinsault is - unfairly in my opinion - generally consigned to being a constituent of blended rosé wines in the Languedoc, but this is a brilliant example of what can be done with it when left to take on some skin colour, tannin and more of that lovely red fruit. The result is a completely delicious and more-ish wine.
