Wine of the Week – Le Coume Du Roy. Maury, 2007

A recent report from the Wine Market Council notes that 40 percent of Millennials express an preference for sweet wines, a shift from earlier generations which found them to be less refined and complex than drier counterparts. In Roussillon in France, producers of more than 80 percent of all AOP-certified fortified sweet wines in the country, red, white and rosé Vins Doux Naturels, all full of complex aromas and offering various degrees of residual sugars, fill the bill with a variety of interesting options.
Among them is this lovely Grenache noir,from a domaine run a sixth generation vintner.
Maury is an AOP Vin Du Naturels fortified sweet wine, an inky, deep red wine that goes well with blue cheese and meats. Sit back after your evening meal, relax, and sip Le Coume Du Roy. It’s a satisfying ending to the day.
