La marquise 2019

For this cuvee we hand-picked and sorted the best bunches of
Roussanne and Grenache Gris from the « tips » (the end of short
rows) of our vineyard. They have produced a bright, translucent, wine
tinged with gold. 2019 at Domaine Calmel and Joseph was cool and
wet at the end of winter, followed by a hot summer. Late picking
enabled the Roussanne to take its time ripening and develop intense
aromas of white peach, apricot and white flowers. The influence of the
oak ageing appears on the finish in a lovely nutty, spiciness. The
Grenache Gris adds aromatic complexity with its citrus notes, but
above all a fine minerality, with floral notes and exotic fruit
intermingled with sweet almond. This is a highly polished white wine,
refined and generous as only our region can produce. It’s high time
you made acquaintance with the great white wines of the Languedoc!


IGP Pays d’Oc


100% Roussanne

13 % alc./vol

Sandy clay slopes with limestone and alluvial deposits.

The grapes are destemmed without crushing and then pressed. The
must then settles by natural sedimentation after 48 hours.
Fermentation is thermo-regulated at 16 degrees, lowering
progressively until all the sugars have been transformed. The young
wine is then racked into 228 litre barrels on its fine lees.

10 months in two-year-old barrels.
