2016 Marselan IGP, Domaine De l`Armet, Languedoc, France
Made from 100% Marselan (a crossing of Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon), the wine is an intense ruby red in colour with notes of fresh black fruits on the nose. Soft and ripe on the palate bursting full of blackberry and cherry flavours with an undertone of liquorice. Silky tannins support this soft wine which finishes long and fruity.
14% ABV. Wonderful with grilled meats, cold meats, pate and hard cheeses.
Also called `Clos l`Armet`, this domaine is situated next to Montpellier and has been family run by the Biscaye family for five generations. Emmanuel Biscaye has been in charge since the death of his grandfather over 15 years ago. He was still a student when he inherited the domaine and has worked to update the vineyard and vinification techniques to create wines which are modern and dynamic, but still in keeping with the family traditions.
