history
MARRENON is, first and foremost, more than 40 years of human adventure shared by 460 wine-growers united into co-operatives and today working in a vineyard spreading in the Luberon and the Ventoux regions. The plots are located in the heart of the State Park of Luberon. Therefore, all farming is done in a sustainable way and special programs to preserve the bio-diversity are put in place.
Vineyard
Soil : Plots selected on the characteristic terroirs of Luberon, composed of clay, limestone and plebby scree slopes. The vines are more than 30-year old.
Winemaking
Grapes harvested late September, completely de-stemmed (not crushed). Long Vatting for 3 to 5 weeks according to the plots. /nThe ageing is done in French oak barrels. 30% of new barrels,70% of 1 year old barrels.
Tasting notes
A nice and intense violin-ruby red robe which is typical of a strong concentration. The nose is expressive, fruity and very pleasant with ripe/jammy fruits and blond tobacco notes. In mouth, sweet attack with dominant fresh fruits. Then it becomes more complex with oaky flavors melting with leather and olive notes. Nice amplitude due to intense aromas, kept up with concentrated tannins which are well structured and integrated, not aggressive at all. A rich and silky unit.
Food pairing
Best served at 65°F, and put in decanter 3 hours before tasting. Great companion for a beef rib or game.
Aging potential
Wine for ageing to drink within 10 years.
