In 2018, beautiful spring weather preceded a sweltering, dry summer which enabled very good yields while grapes were harvested quite early, at the end of August and the beginning of September. Alongside terroir, grape variety, and human intervention, weather conditions are paramount in creating unique cuvees create unique cuvées, each with their own qualities and aging potential.
“A sunny vintage marked by dryness. The magic of blending operates once again, bringing freshness and a saline touch to our Clos Marey-Monge 2018.” Emmanuel Sala, Winemaker
Clos Marey-Monge Monopole 2018:
With its brilliant, bright ruby color and purple undertones, our Clos Marey-Monge Monopole 2018 is a complex, generous, and aromatic wine. The nose, flattering, reveals delicately powdered aromas along with notes of dried flowers, fresh roses, and black fruit, highlighted by iodine, a finely peppery note. The palate is fresh, round, and generous, while the tannins are silky with a light sweetness. The very full finish gives this powerful wine an airy side.
