Wine of Maury appellation
The Maury wine producing area is the northernmost in Roussillon, primarily covering 1,000 hectares in the commune of Maury and some specific small areas in neighbouring communes. The appellation covers four communes of the Pyrénées-Orientales, northwest of Perpignan: Maury, Tautavel, Saint-Paul de Fenouillet and Rasiguères. 

Protected to the north by the Corbières chain and to the south by the steep Pyrenees foothills, the Maury vineyards take the shape of a natural corridor, 17 km long and 4 km wide. Of the 1,000 hectares of the appellation’s black soil (Aptian schist, nonmetamorphic and often decomposed), 90% are planted with Grenache (although the AOC decree only requires that this variety make up 70%), complemented by Carignan and Syrah. The white wines are made from Grenache Blanc and Gris, Macabeo, Malvoisie du Roussillon, Muscats d’Alexandrie and Petits Grains. Due to their constitution, the deep red wines of Maury can age for 20 years or more, far longer than the minimum required by current legislation (12 months). The wines produced by Mas Amiel are particularly good examples. 

There are three types of Maury: "Vendange," "Récolte" and "Vintage", aged a minimum of 12 months. These are powerful, complex wines with black fruit overtones. The oxydized red Maury wines offer up notes of dried fruit, cocoa and coffee. The white Maurys, aged for at least twelve months, offer up notes of white fruit and develop honeyed and jammy fruit aromas over time. The “Hors d'Age” Maury wines are aged for a minimum of five years in an oxydative environment. The Rancio Maury wines are deliberately produced to have a "Rancio" taste.
