BRUTAL! Rouge 2021 from Domaine Matassa
Tom's very old Syrah vines and some Muscat petit grain find their way into the Brutal! Rouge 2021. The maceration (=skin contact during fermentation) lasts 3 days and the result is superb: a fine, direct scent of raspberry juice, new facets emerge again and again - strawberries, blueberries and fresh herbs. The palate is energetic and precise with great length - the Brutal! Rouge is ever-changing but never exhausting. With a little patience and time, a great natural cinema opens up. Extremely limited, so be quick. As with all natural wines from Matassa, there is no addition of sulfur or other additives, the work in the vineyard is the focus here, and this is skillfully demonstrated.
