Domaine de Ménard – Cuvée Marine

    AOC CÔTES DE GASCOGNE

    Red

    The result is a clear and fine wine, with a nice complexity that blends aromas of exotic fruits, pineapple, and grapefruit. The freshness of the mineral-rich soil is easy to taste in the finish.

    ESTATE

    The history of the estate began in 1920 when Jean François Morel, Swiss winemaker, decided to settle in Gascony to work the vineyard. The estate was just 10 hectares, but now has 120 and the grandchildren of Jean-François are now in charge of the estate. At the heart of the Bas Armagnac, the estate Ménard is located along the famous Via Podensis, a road used for centuries by pilgrims going to Saint Jacques de Compostela.
