Our box specials are a fun way for us to give you a few wines we love, at a discount and with free shipping! These are our first loves of Domaine Mamaruta and have a light red, medium red, and a rose to have a wine for all occasions!
Le Coup Soif 2017
Domaine Mamaruta • 750ml • 13%
70% Carignan and 30% Grenache from 70 year old vines. Whole bunch press with 15 days maceration.
Light drinking with bright acidity and vigor, this is our favorite food wine of our Domaine Mamaruta portfolio of red wine. We personally like to pair it with late-night on the town food (think pizza, kebab, etc.) but it would do just as well with something like a risotto or a rich poultry dish.
Carignan has been classified as a low-quality, bulk wine in the past, but producers like Marc Castan have been creating wines made out of Carignan that change even the harshest critic's mind. When done properly, Carignan has a medium-light body, intensely fruit-forward nose, and deliciously quaffable flavor profile of red fruit. The 30% Grenache adds a slight herbaciousness, while rounding out the wine to create a seriously good natural red blend!
Un Grain de Folie 2018
Domaine Mamaruta • 750ml • 12%
A gastronomic rosé with peach and strawberry aromas. 60% Syrah, 40% Carignan. Organic, spontaneous fermentation, natural. 12 hours on the skins, sur lie for six months.
The 2018 version of Un Grain de Folie has the light drinkability of a Provencal rosé, but more fresh fruit on the nose. The color is a vibrant pink, with a slight haze one would expect from an unfined, unfiltered rose.
Balanced acidity, fruit, and alcohol make this a friendly food pairing. We'd recommend fresh salads, fatty fish like salmon, or sunny weather and a picnic! Serve chilled, between 48-52 degrees.
Le vin de ma cocotte 2015
Domaine Mamaruta • 750ml • 14%
100% Carignan from 100 year old vines. Soft tannins balance maturity and freshness. Spontaneous fermentation, unfined, unfiltered, 100% natural.
Le Vin de Ma Cocotte is exactly what quality-minded producers in the Languedoc-Roussillion were thinking off when they started making wines designed to cast off Carignon's reputation as cheap, low quality, bulk wine. Using the best plots of land to grow grapes from centuries-old vines and natural vinification techniques have created a wine that's incredibly refined and well-balanced, with medium-high acid, medium tannin, and medium body. We'd recommend drinking the 2015 vintage now or allowing it to age a few more years
The smoothness of this wine allows it to be drank all on its own pre-dinner, but it loves to be paired with a charcuterie board, cheeses, or roasted poultry dishes.
