Details

Zacmau Causse Marines, biodynamic wine, low sulphur wine, 100% Mauzac variety, stunning complexity and texture, nutty, savoury, beautiful with rustic southern French foods. This is sublime drinking, dry, fresh yet complex and layered, perfect for fish with rich flavoured sauces. Only a few thousand bottles are made and this wine is a rare example of some of the unique gems still hidden in the French countryside. 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 biodynamic and their philosophy is simple, look after the land and let the wines make themselves.



Situated in Gaillac, Domaine Causse Marines is a 15 hectares wine estate managed by Patrice Lescarret and Virginie 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.
