Domaine La Grange Saint Andre Le Marmot 2020
Olivier only started winemaking in 2015 – he was previously working in Lyon as a social worker. A busy family life with his wife and four children means he hasn't had time to go to university; instead he has learned on the job, with help from his friend and fellow vigneron Thierry Forestier.
Light, peppery and fruity Cinsaut/Grenache blend from Languedoc from ines aged 10 to 40 years. Hand harvested in boxes, whole bunches crushed lightly before a brief 4-day maceration; no pumping over or punching down in steel tank. 8 months ageing before bottling without additions.
Cinsault (80%), Grenache Noir (20%)
