Zacm'Orange Causses Marines, biodynamic orange wine, aromatic, elegant Mauzac. The rather playfully named Zacm'Orange (a sort of reversal of the grape Mauzac) is a fantastic biodynamic orange wine with lovely freshness, floral aromas and a lovely supple mouthfeel. The wine is made entirely according to biodynamic principals (Demeter), with wild yeast fermentation, no filtration, low sulphur, and - if you take the label literally - no badgers harmed during the making of the wine. My rough translation of the rather philosophical (and typically French) back label reads: 'Having previously been snubbed by critics, Zacm'Orange has proved its worth purely by its own existence. This wine not only reflects the varietal characteristics of Mauzac with skin maceration, but seeks to demonstrate the close harmony between grape and winemaker in a living environment.'

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.
