La Mariole 2020
90% Carignan, 10% Marselan
Century-old Carignan vines produce a wonderfully vibrant, dark-fruited and juicy wine, buoyed by fresh minerality.
Mathieu and Xavier Ledogar are two brothers in the fourth generation of winemakers. In the mid-90's, when the brother's took over, they began the conversion to organic and biodynamic practices. Instead of making grapes for a co-op like their forebears, they bottled under the family name and began their journey to produce the most unadulterated wines the terroir could produce. With help from some 100-year-old vines, they've gotten better and better at doing just that. They currently work 19 hectares of land.
