Chateau Maris Organic Minervois
Chateau Maris Organic Minervois has lovely pure spicy violet and black cherry aromas, tasty fruit with fairly easy-going tannins, nice ripe dark fruit flavours vs a peppery finish.
The Chateau Maris Organic Minervois is a perfect example of how in the right hands the Languedoc can produce great Syrahs, and great wines in general.
Owned by Englishman Robert Eden since 1996 at Château Maris they strive to make wines which showcase the character of its terroir with particular emphasis on sustainability and protection of the natural environment.
Robert thinks of his vineyards as complex living structures and takes great care and pride in farming his estate biodynamically and has even built the world’s first hemp cellar, which was designed to run on zero carbon emission.
The entire estate is hand harvested and some plots are ploughed by the estate’s own workhorses each year, with barley, bulgur and mustard being grown in between rows to enrich the soil and strengthen the vines.
In the cellar, the Chateau Maris Organic Minervois is made using only natural yeasts found in the vineyard and bottled un-fined, un-filtered.
The oxidation is limited as much as possible by keeping the wines with CO2 at constantly low temperature. The wine is racked the least amount of times and are all aged at the very least 12 months in oak barrels.
The end product is a “never corrected”,un-acidified, un-chaptalized wine – as nature ntended.
All the tanks, cone shaped wooden ones or large wide natural concrete or egg shaped concrete ones, were all specifically designed and sized for Chateau Maris by tank maker Nomblot.
All Maris wines are un-fined and un-filtered. During the winemaking any kind of additive of animal origin is absolutely avoided. For this reason, all Maris wines are suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.
