Elegantly Organic by Claude Vialade. The outcome of two generations (father & daughter) of expertise in the domain of organic wine. Fruitness, an essential element in the harmonious balance of great wines, has here been crafted to perfection. This is without doubt the most sensual and exotic collection of wines I have so far created. The Southern provenance is unmistakable: the Languedoc is the N° region in the world of organic wines, and the spirit of the Mediterranean is found in that fragrance of soft fruit and delicate spices: a touch of oak adds an exotic hint of vanilla. The charm, the "French Touch" of this wine is displayed unreservedly: it is rich, harmonious, fleshy. It melts in the mouth. The butterfly is a Monarch, symbol of biodiversity.
It's the name - in Occitan - for a hill in the Corbières, near Ribaute, the home village of the Vialade family. My father, jean - a visionary of his time - planted his vineyard there, and cultivated it in the tradition of Organic Agriculture from the 1970's onwards. Montmija is the benchmark when it comes to organic wine. It is the authentic organic brand which gives its name to a collection of southern and global grape varieties expressive of the Mediterranean. In this case I am looking for fruitiness in dry wines, the more lightly scented florescence of the garrigue scrubland. These are wines of style where we discover the immensity of the Corbières, the beauty of the Pays Cathare, land of history, land of freedom. Available: Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah rosé and Syrah red. The flagship of this collection is without doubt the AOP Corbières-Montmija - Signature.
