Vins Philippe Dandurand

Marius Rosé

Marius, Pays d'Oc

SOILS AND VINE TRAINING METHOD

The Grenaches are grown on clay and limestone soils mainly facing directly East, while the Cinsaults and the Syrahs are planted on the plain in predominantly sandy soils. The grapes are picked at maturity in order to combine fruitiness and freshness.

OENOLOGY

The Marius rosé is a 100% pressed rosé. The musts under go very little racking in order to develop the wine’s volume yet maintain its freshness. Balance is the golden rule. Alcoholic fermentation takes place at low temperature for 15 days and then the wine is aged on its fine lees in stainless steel or concrete vats for 3-4 months.

TASTING NOTES

Colour: bright, rose petal.
Nose: floral with an amylic note.
Taste: clean on entry, nice acid balance, full, enhanced by notes of white-fleshed fruit.

Marius advises you to serve this wine between 10 and 12°C.
Ideal for aperitif drinking, it will also go well with summer cuisine: salads, grills and dishes from the south of France.
