Marius Vermentino IGP Pays D'Oc 2022
Marius Terret Vermentino IGP Pays D'Oc
The story behind Michel Chapoutier's latest innovation, Marius, is that he remembers his great grandfather as a man with an insatiable thirst for life, and he is also the dapper gentleman who graces the label on Marius wines.
"A good wine is a wine you want to taste again", my great grandfather used to say.
This wine carries his message as well as the warmth of the soil in the South of France where this wine is rooted.
Conviviality, that of a man who likes to share. By mastering the grapes of the Rhone Valley of which secrets I wanted to reveal.
Now, it's my turn to carry a message of pleasure through this wine.
White Marius is a fresh wine, elegantly casual.
Quite naturally the Terret was chosen for its liveliness and the Vermentino for its refined, floral aromas.
These grapes varieties benefit from the perfect amount of sunshine their vineyards receive.
Harvesting takes place at night to obtain richer, fresher wines.
Then, our wine blending know-how reveals all the complexity and balance of this delicious white wine Marius.
In order to achieve a balanced and complex vintage, the vineyards we have selected are cultivated on clay and calcareous hillsides. This type of location provides favourable sun exposure conditions on the hillsides as well as sufficient water reserves in the limestone earth so that the vineyards can reach its desired maturity. Furthermore, these vineyards are controlled using the Royat Cordon pruning technique enabling to grow balanced grapes with a regular maturity. The rootstocks are adapted to the soils.
When you taste it, enjoy in particular:
Its colour: bright appearance, a straw yellow colour with golden and green highlights, bright appearance.
On the nose: open with white fruit, peach and ripe fruit aromas.
On the palate: full and fruity on entry, ripe fruit aromas and lovely acidity.
Marius advises you to serve this wine between 10 and 12°C, during an aperitif or a meal among friends.
