Marguerite Symphonie Red Magnum comes from the Cru Classé vineyard; Chateau Saint Marguerite in Provence. Saint Marguerite was purchased in 1977 by Jean-Pierre Fayard and his wife and since then has since grown to become one of Provence’s most dynamic and well-respected estates. The vineyards are incredibly picturesque, and the vines are surrounded by palm trees, looking out over the ocean.
It is this proximity to the sea, and optimum sun exposure, that sets Chateau Sainte Marguerite apart from the rest. In such a warm climate, the cooling sea breeze is essential for quality grape growing. The resulting wines are fresh and vibrant, rather than overly ripe and thin (like many other wines of the region). It’s unsurprising that most of Chateau Sainte Marguerite ‘s vineyards are classified Cru Classé, certified Organic and are suitable for Vegans.
With its tall, elegant bottle, this wine is designed to be an event. For the wine itself is stunning, it will need some time open to soften, so make sure you have a bottle of the Rosè open too! Oak flavours are very evident upon opening, but this wine softens out with loads of lovely blackcurrant fruits. It’s definitely a dinner party pleaser!
