Born from the desire to have a nice freshness to enjoy in the garden with friends, Les Roses de Marie is not a garage wine, it is a thirst wine, a nice pleasure to drink right away.
Les Roses de Marie 2019
The 2017 vintage was marked by frost, the 2018 by mildew and 2019 will have played with our nerves requiring constant vigilance. Two heat waves in June and July, a blockage of the vegetative cycle at the end of July and finally a favorable end of summer as in previous years which allows us to obtain fair maturities in mid-September. The nominees for the Roses de Marie this year are the Cabernet-Sauvignon of Le Jardin and L’Atelier plots, the Cabernet Francs are those of L’Atelier plot. As usual everything was pressed immediately, and each batch fermented separately. But the sorting table offered us Merlot juices, fruity, precise and taut; a madness took us, why not try! Fermented and vinified separately, a part of them managed to squeeze during blind blending. So for the first time in a very long time, there is a bit of Merlot in the Roses of Marie 2019. A beautiful coalition for a perfect balance!
