An excellent year for La Marzelle. A very consistent vintage.
In keeping with our respectful approach to the environment, these positive climatic conditions allowed us to use exclusively organic products on the vineyard this year. Summer was more difficult. The conditions in September were excellent. A round and fleshy wine with good acidity which will ensure a remarkable potential for bottle age.
