Chateau de L'Ou 'Secret de Schistes', Rouge, Cotes Catalanes, 2015

When a wine is compared by a noted critic to the most iconic and ultra-expensive wines of Manfred Krankl of Sine Qua Non we couldn't remain unnoticed! 


Robert Parker Wine Advocate - April 2017 : 96/100
" Saturated black in color, the 2015 IGP Côtes Catalanes Secret de Schistes is reminiscent of Manfred Krankl’s SQN Syrahs with its deep, unctuous, layered profile. Cassis, chocolate, licorice, smoked herbs and ample minerality all emerge from this full-bodied, sexy beauty that just begs to be drunk. Possessing ripe tannin, a stacked mid-palate and a great finish, it will be better in a year or two and keep for a decade." Jeb Dunnuck
About the winery;

"The Château de L'Ou is one of my favorite estates in Roussillon. He is driven with an incredible passion and attention to detail by Séverine Bourrier. It is a small estate, but offers a number of cuvées based on the expression of different terroirs. Enthusiasts of full-bodied, textured, powerful, elegant and highly pure wines must follow this areaJeb Dunnuck - Wine Advocate - April 2016
