LE VIN DE BLAISE
Cuvée Marguerite 2018

(OUT OF STOCK)
We will spare you the “grandpa’s” tasting note.

This vintage was rainy in the spring, a pretty brawl in the vines until the end of June with life racing everywhere …

In the bottle, less color than usual on these sandy scrublands, an unusual lightness and acidity …
It almost looks like a Côtes-du-Rhône aged in Burgundy!

Technical information side (or upload it below):
On this cuvée I practice plot selection:
70% Grenache in goblets, planted the year I was born (1967), are blended with 25% 36-year-old Carignan, and a pinch of Syrah

The sandy clayey soils are partially covered with pebbles once rolled by the river.

The vinification is classic: whole bunches hardly crushed, cement vats, quick blending… aging between 6 and 9 months in stainless steel vats.
Annual production: 3200 bottles.
Total SO2 24 mg / l in bottle.
Alcohol content: 13.5% alc.vol

LE VIN DE BLAISE
Cuvée Marguerite 2019

(OUT OF STOCK)
We’ll spare you once again a purring tasting note. But the journalist Pierre Guigui wrote: “This is serious stuff, far from the gluggles that come and go. There is a very nice background,

salinity, structure, very dense juice but still fresh. ” (in Le vin naturel au délà des modes, May 2021)/

At last, in 2019, a bit of “normality” in the weather, and very nice grapes in the end! It wasn’t until autumn 2019 that the sky became a little wild and we were happy for the water tables…

In bottle, you would discover a vintage more typical from our area : a beautiful, dense dark red colour, a little more substance in the mouth, and varietal aromas that are very present.
A nice ageing in bottle is expected.

For this vintage, I still practice plot selection :
70% of Grenache in goblets planted in the year of my birth (1967) are blended with 25% of 36 year old Carignan and a pinch of Syrah.

The sandy-clayey soils are partially covered with pebbles that were once rolled by the river.

The vinification is classic: whole bunches of grapes are hardly crushed, cement vats, quick blending … Aging between 6 and 9 months in stainless steel tanks.
Annual production: 3200 bottles.
