We first offered the Modat wines in late 2012 and the reds sold out in a couple of months such was their popularity with discerning customers. The Petit Modamour is a play on words on le Petit Mot Damour meaning Little Word of Love. The wine also shows a similar intriguing subtlety. It is a blend of Carignan (60%) and Syrah (40%).The fruit is hand picked before being gently destemmed at the sorting table. After fermentation it is aged in stainless steel tanks. The finished product is a round fruity slightly spicy wine with lovely freshness. Its great on its own or as a culinary companion for red meats or charcuterie. Decanting about an hour beforehand will enhance the wines fulsome charms.
"Throat-warming, creamy, coffee-laced red fruit, rich and sinuous with such glorious tangy acidity that it made me think of madeira. The magic of Roussillon! 17 Points." (Tamlyn Currin, JR Purple Pages, January 2017)
