Le Vieux Porche Marcillac Cuvee Lairis France 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Marcillac is an AOC in South West France between Bordeaux and the Rhône Valley. The main variety here is Mansois (90%), with the remainder being made up mostly of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. In this region, Mansois produces a lighter wine with good color, hints of raspberry fruit, and a pronounced aroma of ground spice and red pepper. The 2009 vintage from Costes Rouges was selected to be featured by the Hachette Guide 2010, an indication of its quality.

The Domaine Les Grandes Costes harvests and produces authentic wine-maker’s wines, honest and of very high quality. Fine and elegant, our wines are created for those who revel in earthly pleasures. Les Grandes Costes are at first and foremost rare wines. Some blends can be appreciated young, others flourish with the patina of time that some amateurs of fine wines seek. The wines are complex, fruity and true to their stony northern Languedoc terroir. They have an evident bias towards accuracy and sincerity. There is nothing complicated, old-fashioned or overly sophisticated about our approach to wine. On the contrary. At this time of globalization, quality, origin, terroir, knowhow, authenticity and tradition are the key ingredients for the development of magnificent, pleasurable wines, made to be enjoyed and tasted unabashedly.

Mansois, which is the local name for Fer Servadou is the only grape variety used in the A.O.C. of Marcillac. Its rustic wines show characteristic aromas of blackberries, raspberries, cassis and pepper with an iron minerality attributed to the local terroir.
