Domaine Turner-Pageot "Marcel", Languedoc-Roussilon, France, 2018 (750ml)
Marcel thinks he is a tough and serious guy, straight in his shoes... but give him a little music and a bunch of friends and he will jump in the party. Marcel is a medium-bodied, lush, blend of grenache, cinsault, carignan and a drop of syrah. Ideal with friends, good bread and rillettes!
Domaine Turner-Pageot’s small plots of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Sauvignon blanc, Roussanne and a small amount of Marsanne grow on a mosaic of different soil types on several north-facing aspects at 200 and 300 metres above sea level. The north-facing slopes help to ensure a long and even maturation for the grapes.
They farm everything Biodynamically, keeping the soils as healthy as they possibly can and using a minimum of sulphur in the vineyards and the winery, while warmer than average fermentations rely on ambient yeasts.
