Notes from the importer:

 

Marine Leys aka Vignereuse

 

"After working as a diving instructor and an underwater photographer, Marine began to learn about viticulture while living in Turkey; she then continued studying in Beaune. As a "finishing school", she spent three years working with Gaillac luminaries the Plageoles (who first introduced us to Marine). Marine was lucky to find her vineyards to rent; there used to be 20,000 hectares under vine in Gaillac, now only 5,000 remain.

 

Marine works with a mix of local varieties: Mauzac, Loin de l’Oeil, Braucol, Duras and then some Gamay (fashionable in the 1970’s for Primeur wines), and Syrah ( the most commercial of the varieties, and Gaillac used to sell a lot of bulk must and juice to other regions).

 

The vineyards are situated on the South-East-facing slopes of the Cordais plateau. The soil is schist on limestone – less argilo-calcareous than the rest of Gaillac. All wines are fermented and aged in fibreglass. No sulphur is used on the reds."
