Originally reserved for natural sweet wines, the Maury appellation was created with the 2011 harvest for dry wines produced from the same terroir (Maury, Tautavel, Saint-Paul and Rasiguères municipalities).
The vine growers of this appellation area previously offered their dry wines to the AOP Côtes du Roussillon Villages. Red Grenache, emblematic of this region, ranges from 60% minimum (and 80% maximum) in their wine blends. The wines benefit from a breeding of at least six months.
AOP Maury Sec produce exclusively red wines, hte composition of those are mainly produced from Red Grenache (2 varietals at least). The Hairy Grenache more rarely enters in the composition of these wines.
The Maury vineyard spreads across hills of schist and black marl on slopes encircled by garrigue, which restores the heat stored under the Mediterranean sun at night, which allows the grapes to be very rich in sugar.
The wines from the AOP Maury Sec are defined as dark, rich, strong and very flavorful, with aromas of dark fruit combined with garrigue. They are distinguished in the mouth by their full body and tannin robe encouraged by a minimal period of maturation. Good structure and balance ensure very good ageing. The red wines have a very beautiful dark garnet color that tends towards mahogany with time.
