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 2021
Frosts in April and incessant attacks of mildew throughout the campaign have marked the harvest of Les Roses de Marie 2021, despite good climatic conditions of harvest; the grapes are small and not very juicy. We start picking the Cabernet Franc from the L'Atelier plot, pressed immediately. Crash! The press breaks down. A part of the harvest is lost. For the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Merlot, we recover the juice during the sorting of the grapes. And the magic happens... The Merlots of plot La Salvatorienne offer a freshness and a rare precision. They will keep them! After fermentation of each batch, during the blind blending, they are the ones who get the lion's share. This is the first time. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc are still in the majority, but not by much. Then an atypical assembly; but of the fruit, the volume and a pretty freshness all in length. They are indeed Les Roses de Marie!
