Aubert & Mathieu

Aubert & Mathieu is the story of two friends, Anthony Aubert and Jean-Charles Mathieu, who met in school, chose different paths, but met up again and decided to further their respective passions for wine production. Their exciting new project started with the 2016 vintage, with the first wines being released in March 2019. Already their main market is the trendy Paris restaurant scene. They set out to produce niche wines in the best terroirs of Languedoc-Roussillon. They focus on the best terroirs in the region, highlighting the nuances and singularities of each appellation. The DNA of their wines show the perfect mastery of freshness, balance and the search for complexity. Inspiration, carefree and a little fantasy led them on their way! Anthony Aubert is modest when he says “Make no mistake…. the real star is the terroir!”

Tasting Notes

Leather and dried cranberries on the nose. The palate is explosive, so intense that it tastes as if the fruit has been on LSD! Catherine wheels of flavour – black cherries, cinnamon, menthol, cumin, red dust, cranberry sherbet poppers. Fabulous acidity, freshness and the tannins have infused perfectly with the fruit. Superb

Vinification

Harvesting and sorting by hand. Slow vinification of 3 weeks followed by blending. Aged for 12 months in 1 year old barrels.
