"Robert Eden pulls this wine from his bio-dynamically tended vineyards in the rocky, windy highlands of La Livinire. A blend of Syrah with Grenache and Carignan, its a wine you can sink your teeth into, and it responds with juicy black fruit, spicy and fresh, and notes of mint, licorice and rose. Vinified in cement eggs and vats, it retains a sense of cool, stony clarity that brings light to its darkness and beams them into long-lasting fragrance. Its at once firmly structured and ethereal, a balance that makes it addictive as well as potentially long-lived."
About Chateau Maris
Robert Eden, a biodynamic winemaker, has built the world's first hemp cellar with Château Maris.

When the vineyard was purchased in Languedoc, the initial yields were lower than expected. The soil was dead, due to the previous farmer's overuse of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, so we looked at ways of rejuvenating it, using compost. Biodynamic preparations were added to one organic compost pile and another was left alone. After a while the biodynamic pile container far more living organisms so the decision was then made.

It was a business decision since the vines are now healthier and grow longer – and the quality of grapes is better. The entire estate is certified by both Demeter and Biodyvin. The fertilizer is compost made from local cow and sheep manure plus some horse manure. Yields are 32 Hl/Ha on average and the entire estate is hand harvested. Chateau Maris is now a 79 acres Biodynamic and Organic Estate (certified by Demeter since 2008, Biodyvins since 2004, Ecocert since 2002 and NOP) divided into a multitude of small vineyards on the hillside above the village of La Livinière, the first Cru Classe of the Minervois, in the Languedoc region.

When you purchase any Château Maris wine, you are really getting great tasting wines that are produced and brought to you with minimal environmental impact, at the best price possible in the most ethical way possible. Better for the Earth, Better for the Wine, Better for You.
