Inky-purple in the glass, fragrant with scents of blackberry, red cherry, liquorice and tobacco. On the palate further red fruit flavours of plums with hints of dark chocolate and peppery spice. The texture is chewy and the tannins discreet leading to a lingering finish. Very fresh, wild and lively.

Additional Information: In 1998 Elian Da Ros returned to the Côtes du Marmandais to take over the running of his father’s 5ha vineyard. He stopped delivering to the local coop and was the first to produce and bottle his own wine under the Côtes du Marmandais appellation. 

At the time, the wines of the region were so poorly seen that the government was paying farmers to rip out their vines in order to limit production and Elian was able to pick and choose the best terroir on the hills. Today he is regarded as a pioneer for the region. 

The estate has been farmed organically since 2000, and received certification in2003. Elian has used biodynamic farming on his vines since 2002. 

30-year-old vines; 90%  Abouriou, 10% Merlot. Manually harvested, whole bunch semi-Carbonic maceration with ten days in VAT and 15 months in casks and barrels. Light filtration before bottling.
