Cuvée Marguerite 2021 from Domaine Matassa
The Cuvee Marguerite is a flavorful triad of aromatic grape varieties Muscat d'Alexandrie, Macabeu and Muscat, grown on a small and old parcel of old vines on slate and marl soils. Fermented in 500 liter wooden barrels and aged for about 3-4 months on the fine lees. Due to the extremely reduced yield of about 15-20 hectoliters, the flavors are extremely fine, everything is interwoven very well. Tom Lubbe practices biodynamic agriculture in extreme form, that his wines in this climate have a maximum of 12% alcohol is remarkable. The Cuvee Marguerite is like a Mediterranean flower meadow: flattering, multi-complex and extremely elegant with leading tannins and a wonderful pull on the palate. Like all natural wines from Matassa, bottled unfiltered and unsulphured. A natural wine in its purest form: Clear, precise and with an unadulterated terroir flavour.
