Rose de Nymphe Émue

The “Cuisse de Nymphe Emue” is a variety of pink rose, a very pale pink pulling slightly on the mauve. It was brought to France at the end of the 17th century, from Crimea.

This coloured Languedoc rosé is a testament to exceptional sunshine. Pressed directly without contact with the skins, it reveals a fleshy pink color worthy of a “Thigh of Nymph Emue”. The nose and mouth confirm this impression through notes of red berries and citrus fruits. A summer rosé par excellence to share with friends.

Savoir Vieillir

A pure sulfur-free Syrah! “Savoir Vieillir” (aging wisely) was born of the desire to offer the best that the earth can produce when it is listened to, respected, and worked intelligently. At Maris, it’s crystal clear: we work with nature, we follow it as much as we guide it. Nature gives back to us. This relative wisdom consists of taking time. The time to do things well. “Savoir Vieillir” is first of all a nod to Cicero and his treatise on old age, a text from Antiquity, so modern in truth. It is also an antidote to the vanity of urgency and inconsistency of things.

Taste : The color is dark purple. The nose is delicate, fresh, with aromas of lively fruit, redcurrant, cherry, and pomegranate. The mouthfeel is moderately concentrated, creamy and lively at the same time, very charming, with notes of blueberry, violet and pepper. A wine of spontaneous pleasure. Aging potential : 2-4 years. Grape Varieties : Syrah, Grenache.

Les Planels

If you take the Chemin des Planels, you will walk along vertically-stepped dry stone walls. These walls, typical of La Livinière, serve to mitigate the erosive effects of water and maintain the soil on the terraces where the “Les Planels” Syrah grapes have been grown for over 35 years. Surrounded by pine trees, the vineyard receives ample exposure to the sun and imparts to this vintage generosity and a good structure whose intensity is felt even in its aroma. This vintage fully expresses the typical La Livinière terroir.

Taste : Thyme, rosemary, some menthol notes, a touch of lavender, this aromatic bouquet propels you into the heart of the vine. In the mouth, this sunny wine communicates over the full length of the tongue: a bouquet of already complex aromas with some notes of sautéed black cherries, blackcurrant, licorice, pepper and cold meats. Dark purple color. Rich, full-bodied, yet elegant and seamless, with an impressive texture. An integrated acidity and a beautiful elegance, making you come back to the glass. Aging potential: 7-10 years. Grape Varieties: Syrah & Grenache (15% max).

Las Combes

The highlighting of Grenache grapes at La Livinière, where Syrah is generally favored, reflects Robert Eden’s affection for this grape variety, which he considers to reveal the nuances of the terroir. From the plot known as Las Combes, an old vineyard shaped like a goblet, this Grenache displays a unique personality, with tremendous potential for maturing in the bottle. Initially full of finesse, it then continues to increase in power while developing a complex palette of subtle aromas (candied fruit, black olive, chickpea).

Taste : The color is dark purple. The nose is elegant, with notes of ripe and tangy fruit (pomegranate, cherry, black currant) and roasted coffee beans. The medium-bodied mouth feel seduces by its freshness, its roundness, its juicy and vibrant character, its tension in the generously fruity finish. Aging potential : 5-10 years.

Les Anciens

Born from nearly 100-year-old grapevines facing south above the village of La Livinière, this Carignan vintage is an ode to our oldest grapevines. Witnesses to the development of the vines, the plots are strewn with dry stones and dominated here and there by “capitelles”, the stone shelters so characteristic of La Livinière, where the winemaker could seek shelter from the wind or store his tools back in the day.

Taste : Nose with aromas of blackcurrant, herbs and sweet tobacco, earth and roasted spices. Les Anciens is medium-bodied, fresh and lively. Aging potential : 3-7 years.

Dynamic

A thoroughbred! Dynamic is a pure Syrah from our best vineyards located in the hills (near Siran) of La Livinière. It is a great wine with a very limited yield, aged in barrels for 16 months. Dynamic combines power and finesse. “It is an elegant, subtle wine, in which we always include a touch of 10 to 15% non-wooded Grenache Noir, which seems to us to guarantee slower maturing and therefore better resistance over time”. Robert Eden.

Taste : Dynamic offers an impressive nose of smoked black fruits, melted licorice, blackcurrant and dried meat. Its inky color with hints of purple announces a rich, creamy, and remarkably invigorating mouthfeel. A long balsamic finish underlines its magnificent balance. Aging potential : 7-10 years.

Les Amandiers

A sublime picture. That’s what the small plot of Syrah offers in the spring when the Almond trees of La Livinière are in bloom. This exceptional vintage has a very limited yield. Made predominantly with Syrah grapes, this wine offers a bouquet of already very complex and magnificent aromas, with notes of black fruit such as blackcurrant, white flowers, and licorice.

Taste : A wonderful bouquet of black fruit, blackcurrant and blackberry aromas, with notes of white flowers, wet rock and licorice. The mouthfeel is full, powerful, and caressing. Its very velvety tannic structure balances its fruity richness and generous body, combining to give a lingering voluptuousness. Aging potential : 10-12 years.
