A rare block planted with only Grenache Gris.
Planted in Cru La Liviniere but declassified as VDF since it is mono varietal. 60-70 yr vines, Clay, limestone soil.
Fresh, focused tropical fruits, honeysuckle, lemon rind, and buttered almonds on the nose. Racy and pure on the palate, with a lovely, elegant texture that’s lifted by the wines acidity.

Their Vineyards are located between Carcassonne and Beziers in the southern French area that is broadly referred to as the Languedoc-Roussillon. The Languedoc covers a vast area however Maris is specifically located in the Minervois appellation. The scrubland that surrounds the vineyard plays an important part too and the biodynamic practices that we use here allow them to fully embrace the vibrant natural ecosystem. They take environmental responsibility very seriously and it is, in part, why they choose to care for their land following organic and biodynamic principals.

The area in Eastern Languedoc where Minervois lies is essentially the northern reaches of Catalunia, the former nation whose borders encompass a region more tied in cuisine (and wine) than roadsigns and lines on a map. This entire swath of north-south Mediterranean coastline (reaching well past Barcelona) holds a deep tradition of delicious, aromatically delectable food (and wine.) The Grenache grape holds sway here, and is often the main varietal in any great, affordable red wine from the region. However, it is far enough north to have been planted to some of the other great varieties of Southern France: Syrah, Mourvedre, even Cab make appearances in the area.
