Loaded with ripe, red and dark fruit character, complex spice notes, and plenty of Maury minerality. Well structured, with intense fruit and fine-grained tannins on the full-bodied palate. Very long on the finish. Food Pairings: Drinkable on release, it will evolve gracefully for a decade. A versatile wine that will stand up to richer dishes, it is an ideal pairing for grilled lamb loin chops, tea-smoked duck, herb-crusted roast beef, and more.

Wine AdvocateEssentially a lot selection of the Serge & Nicolas that saw extended élevage in foudre, the 2015 Maury Sec First Things First shows a greater degree of elegance and polish as a result. Cherry fruit is accented by hints of baking spices and garrigue, plus vague notions of leather and suede that border on being textural elements as well as aromas and flavors. It's remarkably weightless and silky for a wine from Maury.
