Languedoc co-operative Mont Tauch has launched sticky Reserve Maury 2001 in the UK for Christmas.

The fortified dessert wine is made from Grenache Noir and is aged in large oak casks for nine years.

It will be available in Morrisons from November, priced £7.49 for a 37.5cl bottle.

The grapes were grown on the slopes of a Cathar castle near the town of Maury, between the foothills of the Pyrenees and the Corbières hills.

With notes of rich dried fruit and nuts, figs, dates, apricots and hazelnuts and a lingering nutty, dried fruit finish, the wine is best served chilled, particularly with Christmas pudding.

“Fortified wines are making a comeback and there is a lot of interest in this style of wine among the UK trade,” said Mont Tauch UK sales director Antoine Leray. “The Reserve Maury 2001 is part of a new range of fortified wines that Mont Tauch launched earlier this year in response to this new trend.”
