Mas Coutelou 2018 ClasseRegular price £22
Jeff Coutelou's wines are a mystery. Each year you're never sure quite what will appear, and the wine known as 'Classe' has been made from completely different vineyards and grape varieties on various occasions. It doesn't matter - whatever you can get, buy, and you won't be disappointed. This is a natural wine as all should be - impeccable fruit gently made into a drink of extraordinary purity. Beguilingly delicious.
Carignan, Grenache, Syrah. Vineyards around the village of Puimisson, a little inland from Béziers. Large proportion of old vines. Certified organic since 1987. Little or no sulphur even at bottling.
