The vineyards of Marmande are on the north bank of the Garonne River, east of Bordeaux. This wine, produced by the cooperative from a single vineyard, is dense, concentrated and full of both fine fruit and tannins. It has juicy black fruits that are sustained by the dusty texture. The aftertaste with its acidity is fresh and fruity. Drink from 2018.
