"As fresh and juicy as we could possibly make it, Le Carignan de Maris is made in an environment that encourages bio-diversity and sustainability. It’s handpicked, fermented with natural yeasts in large concrete tanks in our Hemp winery. Our Carignan is a lighter style red wine (bordering on chillable), packed with fresh cherry flavors. It is old vine Carignan, certified Organic by Ecocert AB, blended with 20% Certified Demeter Biodynamic Grenache. It is bottled in super light (395 g.), recycled glass bottle and labeled using only recycled paper. Please open before drinking." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
Le Carignan de Maris is a nimble, medium-bodied red from Château Maris whose light style – which the winery calls "bordering on chillable" — makes it an undeniable pick for cracking open in the warm weather. Loaded with fresh dark cherry and plum fruit filled out with notes of violets and and ground herbs, this 2013 is a fantastic primer in Carignan if you're just getting into this often-overlooked grape. Super focused and with great length, this mega value is ready to drink now or anytime over the next few years!
"A great example of the variety, the 2013 Minervois Carignan de Maris offers classic plum and purple-like fruit, spring flowers, crushed rock and hints of charcoal to go with medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful purity and surprisingly polished tannin, which isn’t easy to do with 100% Carignan. Aged 10-12 months in concrete tank, drink this beauty over the coming 4-5 years." —Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate
