Tasting notes:
'Bright and vivid cherry and raspberry puree notes are interwoven with anise, floral and spice accents in this supple, pretty red. Elements of tea and graphite line the finish. Drink now through 2025.' – Gillian Sciaretta, Wine Spectator, 90/100

'Like a bouquet of flowers, very high-toned. Bursting with strawberry on the palate. Soft, soft tannins allow the fruit to shine. Moreish.' – Tom Parker MW, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5+/20

About Domaine des Marrans:
The family-run Domaine des Marrans is located in Fleurie in northern Beaujolais. Founded in 1970, Mathieu Mélinand has been running the estate since he took over from his father, Jean-Jacques, in 2008. Since then, Mathieu has followed organic farming practices, does harvesting by hand and follows traditional methods in the cellar. The Domaine has 19 hectares of vines which are only planted with Gamay Noir.

Producer information Marras was started by Martin Lamprecht, a passionate winemaker who traded his studies in Mechanical Engineering to pursue a future in winemaking. Martin spent time learning winemaking in France where he focused on varietals grown in the Swartland and Piekenierskloof areas - the regions where the Marras grapes are grown. The vineyards located in the Piekenierskloof region experience warm day-temperatures and cool night-temperatures which creates top-class grapes that add depth and complexity to the wines. The vineyards in the Swartland produce well-balanced and exceptionally ripe and deep-flavoured wines.
