Now, this is something you don't see every day. Matassa isn't widely available and everything that hits the market gets snatched up straight away. That a shame, because Matassa's Tom Lubbe creates wines that can age. And maybe even have to age to reach their full potential.
That's why we were ecstatic when we found the possibility to buy some of these beautiful, ripe vintages. After buying tasting bottles we were confirmed with what we were thinking: this stuff ages fantastiscally. 100% Carignan but with power, this drinks lovely. Very rare, these are the last bottles available in the Netherlands, maybe even the EU.
