Cellar/Tasting Notes
Domaine Cabirau, named after the vineyard itself, was purchased by wine importer, Dan Kravitz, in 2007. Currently, There are now 18 acres (12 Grenache, 3.5 Syrah, 2.5 Carignan) in Dan’s village of Maury. There have always been two bottlings. As the increasingly prestigious Roussillon Appellation requires at least 3 varietals, the first bottlings were Vin de Pays Grenache. Today the basic bottling is Roussillon, a blend of 70% Grenache, with Syrah and Carignan. The top bottling uses the new Appellation ‘Maury Sec’. Based on old vine Grenache, it also incorporates Syrah and Carignan.

Dan became the first American member of a cooperative in the village adjoining Maury. A merge of cooperatives took place to form VTV( Les Vignerons de Tautavel Vingrau) and Cabirau has become a champion for this quality based team.

Maury Sec is named after the two most important people to Dan’s Cabirau project. Serge Soulatge, who tends to the vineyard with the same care he gives his own, and Nicolas Burger who is the head winemaker at VTV.

The Maury Sec is a pre-arrival item and will be shipped out upon receipt in mid August 2014.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 95
"This small estate was purchased by importer Dan Kravitz, and the early releases have exhibited considerable promise. The star at Domaine Cabirau is the 2011 Maury Sec. There are 500 cases of this blend of equal parts Grenache, Syrah and Carignan. I had it in a blind tasting with other Roussillon, Southern Rhone and Catalan wines selling for as much as ten times the price of this wine. This Maury Sec, which came in third out of eleven of these highly rated wines, blew me away. An opaque ruby/purple color is followed by a stunning nose of camphor, acacia flowers, blueberries and blackberries, full-bodied richness, stunning purity, and a long, heady finish. This great value is capable of lasting for another 5-10 years, possibly longer. I have no experience with this estate’s potential longevity, but this is a big time winner. Dan Kravitz has hit a home run with this cuvee."
