Grains de Folie is the tiny production, biodynamic dessert wine from Causses Marines in Gaillac, blink and its gone. Why? Because it tastes so fantastic. Made from late harvest fruit and fermented cool to preserve its freshness, it is an orange blossom and honey scented delight. Sweet but not cloying, drink a 500 ml bottle easy alongside some roquefort and hazelnuts drizzled with organic honey, heaven!

Situated in Gaillac, Domaine Causse Marines is a 15 hectares wine estate managed by Patrice Lescarret and Virgnie Maignien, both winemakers. Patrice studied oenology in Bordeaux and then worked in Sancerre and Provence. After a few years of working conventionally for others, he made the big leap and created his own estate in 1993 by buying 8 hectares of vineyards from a retiring farmer. Virginie was a student of the ESSEC business school who quit everything to enrol in a wine school in Beaune and having met Patrice whilst on a brief training stint at his vineyard never left his side again.
The vineyards at Causses Marines are made of very old vines dating back to world war two. Pascal and Virginie mainly grow indigenous grape varieties such as Mauzac, Loin de L'Oeil, Ondenc and Braucol but also have plantings of Syrah. Soils are calcareous limestone on a rocky plateau. The vineyard is Demeter certified biodyanmic and their philosophy is simple, look after the land and let the wines make themselves.
