Chateau Maris 2019 "La Touge" Minervois La Liviniere

$ 2399

Winemaker Notes

The winding road leading to the plots of Syrah vines located on the terraces at the foot of La Livinière gave its name to this expressive vintage with aromas of black fruits and silky tannins. A singular harmony, with echoes of the surrounding heath. La Touge brings out Life, it is a vintage very representative of biodynamics with a touch of mineral.

Tastes of black fruits, blackcurrant. Inky purple on the glass. La Touge has a full-bodied richness, a beautifully integrated acidity, ripe tannins and no hard edges. It is mellow and sleek, with juicy tannins.

Aging potential : 3-7 years.

Grape varieties : Syrah (60%), Grenache (35) & Carignan (5%)

Critical Acclaim

95pts Wine & Spirits
Robert Eden pulls this wine from his biodynamically tended vineyards in the rocky, windy highlands of La Livinière. A blend of syrah with grenache and carignan, it’s a wine you can sink your teeth into, and it responds with juicy black fruit, spicy and fresh, and notes of mint, licorice and rose. Vinified in cement eggs and vats, it retains a sense of cool, stony clarity that brings light to its darkness and beams them into long-last- ing fragrance. It’s at once firmly structured and ethereal, a balance that makes it addictive as well as potentially long-lived.
