Description

To really enjoy the Cuvée “Marie”, you have to enjoy the simple, direct and immediate things in life. This wine is mainly about fruit intensity, citrus generally and grapefruit specifically. Then it’s about tightness, freshness and finally, it’s a bit of iodine, saline and sapidity. Everything you need to pour a bit of sunshine into your glass. Nocturnal harvest. After sorting the grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press. Cold stabilization during 6 days and cold clarification. Fermentation at 15°in 300hl stainless steel tanks. No malolactic fermentation. Aged on fine lees for 2 months. Tropical fruits on the nose, ripe melon and mango that transforms on the palate into crisp and juicy green apple and lemon zestiness. This is mouthwatering and moreish, not overly complex, but fresh, driven and precise with a long citrus finish.
