Maris, terrific, character-filled wines – Jeb Dunnuck

« Château Maris is a Minervois estate producing terrific, character-filled wines… » Jeb Dunnuck

LES AMANDIERS 2017 – 94/96 POINTS
“Always one of my favorite releases from this terrific estate, the Syrah-dominated 2017 Les Amandiers (there’s some Grenache in the blend as well) offers a full-bodied, lively, yet deep and rich profile that carries stunning notes of cassis, black raspberries, olives, ground pepper, and Asian spices. It has good acidity, beautiful purity, terrific balance, and is a stunning Minervois that will keep for over a decade.”

LES PLANELS 2017 – 90/92 POINTS
“Mostly Grenache, the 2017 Les Planels is a sweetly fruited, plush, hedonist beauty that gives up loads of ripe red and black fruits, toasted spices, chocolate, and incense aromas and flavors. With sweet tannins, medium to full body, no hard edges, and outstanding length, it’s ideal for drinking over the coming 6-8 years.”

LA TOUGE 2017 – 89/91 POINTS
“Leading off these new releases from Domaine Maris, the 2017 Syrah La Touge (there’s some Grenache in the blend as well) offers plenty of black and blue fruits as well as classic pepper, violets, and earthy aromas and flavors. It’s medium to full-bodied, juicy, balanced, and already delicious.”
