2022 Mataburro Quartet14600
WINEMAKER: Laurent Roger & Melissa Ingrand
REGION: Roussillon, FR

"In 2022, this wine was made with Mourvèdre and Grenache from the same place as the Totem. It had a short maceration before pressing and aging in stainless steel. Designed to be drunk chilled. It is called Quartet because it was the fourth cuvée (after Idoine, Mura Mura and Otium, the first wines Laurent and Melissa made). ABV 12.5%." - Living Wines
Mataburro is a small domaine established in Roussillon by rising stars Laurent Roger & Melissa Ingrand. Laurent worked for several years at the venerable Paris bar à vin Le Verre Volé and after that returned to Roussillon to work directly with Alain Castex, then of Le Casot des Mailloles. Towards the end of 2017, armed with what he had learned from Castex, he and Melissa took over the remaining three hectare vineyard from his father, swiftly converting to organics and biodynamics. Alain Castex taught Laurent the importance of the soil. He also had this concept reinforced by Tom Lubbe and Axel Prüfer.
