Winemaker's Notes:

This Syrah/Grenache blend is bight crimson red with violet highlights. Powerful, complex and spicy black fruit aromas, with a delicate vegetal touch. Powerful and concentrated on entry, and well-structured with tannins and vanilla notes on the finish.
My Notes:

About Marius:

Michel Chapoutier is one of the most highly regarded winemakers in France. It was Michel Chapoutier's grandfather who ignited a passion for winemaking and a commitment to quality in his young grandson, inspiring Michel to leave Tain to study oenology at one of France's best winemaking schools, subsequently landing him winemaking internships in California. In 1987, Michel returned to Tain l'Hermitage and under his leadership, dramatic changes brought world acclaim to his wines.

Today Michel Chapoutier continues to spearhead winemaking successes under his leadership and infuses all of his projects with the same level of passion his great grandfather had lived his life with. The story behind Michel Chapoutier's latest innovation, Marius, is one of deep family connection. He remembers his great grandfather as a man with an insatiable thirst for life – and he is also the dapper gentleman who graces the label on Marius wines.
