description

The cross variety of Marselan (Cabernet Sauvignon x Grenache) is one of the most successful efforts of southern France and was created in 1961. The heavy dose of Marselan (32%) in this Cotes Catalanes cuvee gives this wine a unique quaffability that keeps the imbibers palate wanting more. The remainder of the blend is comprised of Merlot (40%) and Carignan (28%). A short maceration of the grape harvest is utilized with light extraction by infusion to favor the fruit with tannins.The resulting wine is aged in concrete tanks to favor the sparkle of the fruit.

This I.G.P. Côtes catalanes is certified Organic Wine (culture without pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, sulphites keep to a strict minimum ). In the vineyard, the main concern is to cultivate and not to exploit, with the permanent concern of overall improvement of soil fertility. Accompany this wine “...with: a gazpacho, a paella, beautiful freshly caught mullet.... and especially friendliness."
