This eco-friendly, deep-coloured expression from Occitanie, made without the addition of sulphites by biodynamic specialist of southern France, Château Maris, was awarded the ultimate accolade, a Master, in our 2018 Organic Masters.
The wine impressed with its “bright acidity”, a fresh bouquet of “youthful black fruit” and a “graceful finish,” according to Susan McCraith MW, one of the experts on our judging panel.
Our judges also loved the red’s “ripe” Syrah nose, singing with rich black fruit, vanilla and tapenade.
When it comes to ethical winemaking, Château Maris is an old hand. A biodynamic and organic winery in the Languedoc, the 79-acre estate has been certified by Ecocert since 2002, Biodyvin since 2004, Demeter since 2008 and BCorps since 2016.
