Domaine de Marcoux, Lirac, La Lorentine, AOC, organic wine, red, 2018, from € 16.90

 

A very noteworthy wine that got better and better from vintage to vintage thanks to the biological work in the vineyards. The Domaine de Marcoux Lirac has been rated in the past few years by Jeb Dunnuck (an American wine critic) with 90 to 94 points.

 

Organic wine - profile

  • Color: bright ruby red
  • Nose: lush scents of red berries and fruits with spicy, sweet notes of exotic spices.
  • Mouth: rich taste components of ripe red and black berries, compote of stone fruits, notes of fresh almonds. Fresh thanks to its fresh, fruity nature. Although it has a high alcohol content and a full body, it looks anything but clumsy and tired.

 

Organic wine - processing, Domaine de Marcoux, Lirac

The vines grow on limestone soil where successive erosion has deposited red clays, gravel, sand and pebbles on the surface.

The harvest is done manually, with the grapes first sorted in the vineyard and then brought back to the cellar in 50 kg cardboard boxes. A second sorting takes place in the cellar. The berries of the grapes are separated from the panicles, lightly crushed, then macerated in the mash, cooled. As with all Domaine de Marcoux wines, no foreign yeasts are used for fermentation. During fermentation, the temperature is regulated and the mash is pumped over daily. The aging takes place in concrete barrels and in foudres. Bottling usually takes place 18 months after harvest.
