Premier Vin 2021 from Sense Pressa
100% Grenache, from 20-year-old vines on limestone. The Premier Vin is bursting with animating juiciness, which, together with the light berry aroma, results in a wonderfully drinkable natural wine, captured by a delicate tannin that acts like a silk cloak. Marius works organically and with meticulous manual labour, spontaneous fermentation and ageing in steel tanks. Due to the hot temperatures and the high fruit extract, Marius initiates a short, 3-7 day maceration with rape to avoid over-extraction - so the wine retains its drinking-animating juiciness and freshness. The natural wines of Sense Pressa never seem tired or limp, but are always on the animating side. As with Matassa, they are prime examples of the new, modern and above all light wine style in the hot south of France. Unfiltered and bottled without sulphur.
