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.
The Roses of Mary 2020
This year, in the Médoc, the heat and drought gave small grapes with a high alcoholic potential and an acidity often lower than usual. The cool nights at the beginning of September brought back balance and the showers just before the harvest brought freshness and softened the Cabernets. L'Atelier plot gave us its Cabernet Franc as well as its Cabernet Sauvignon, along with some from l'Orée du Bois. As usual all the grapes were pressed immediately and each batch fermented separately. We repeated the experience of the 2019 with some precise and tense Merlot juices to see if they would qualify again during the blind blending... And yes! They did! They sneaked in. So, for the second time, there are a few merlots in Les Roses de Marie 2020.
Fruity, a little fat, a salivating and fresh finish... a candy!
