The Wine:
Claude Marechal makes his wines as naturally as possible, taking his inspiration from his late friend Henri Jayer who he trained with early in his career.

In the vineyard, ripeness and organics are key. The vines are maintained in order to maximise phenolic maturity every vintage whatever the conditions. After harvest the bunches are sorted by hand and gently de-stemmed before vinification using natural yeasts. The fermenting must is pumped over twice daily and once alcoholic fermentation is finished the wines are placed into oak barrels where they mature for between 10 and 15 months.

Pure and sleek with vibrant fruit and great potential to age.
