Winemaker Notes

A deep, intense garnet-red. Elegant, powerful, black curranty nose. Structured tannins, fresh on the palate, a generous

finish on notes of licorice sticks. A fine example of a classic Madiran. 

Blend: 80% Tannat, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
The smooth, rich and smoky texture of this massive wine brings out layers of black-plum fruits and tight acidity that adds juiciness. The wine's power is palpable, dense and set for much more aging. Drink from 2024.

Vignobles Marie Maria, France
Benedictine monks have been cultivating the vineyards of Madiran since the 11th Century. Today, the local farmers are keeping this tradition very much alive under the banner of the Marie Maria which unites some of the finest terroirs of the appellation. Marie Maria was born of an intrinsic, profound and heartfelt desire to forge ahead with the work of revealing the great terroirs of Madiran. Their wines represent the appellation’s best attributes: firmness, freshness and balance. You only have to look to the past to see that wine connoisseurs from the four corners of the earth have always praised the region’s unique style and, thanks to the efforts of many determined, hard-working men and women, this is not about to change. Roland Podenas, President and winegrower, speaking on behalf of the winegrowers of Marie Maria. A return to the origins of Madiran wines. The ambition of Vignobles Maria Maria is to liberate the image of Madiran wines from their archetypes (concentration, power) to embody the best that the Appellation has to offer: freshness and balance. At the origin of this approach, a small group of winegrowers from the Cave de Crouseilles created a few cuvées to discover the wines of the appellation. Marie Maria was born out of a strong desire: to continue the work, to continue to reveal the complexities of a great terroir, that of Madiran.

Offering the perfect balance of quality and value, Southwest, France is a recognized appellation that encompasses all wine regions in France’s southwestern corner (except for Bordeaux and Cognac, which merit their very own). Two of the more famous subregions here are Cahors, known for its Malbec, and Madiran, home of the robust Tannat grape. Bordeaux Blends are also popular red wines of the Southwest; Petit Manseng is the regions’s star autochthonous white variety.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended red wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged resulting in a wide variety of red wine styles. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a red wine blend variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.

How to Serve Red Wine

A common piece of advice is to serve red wine at “room temperature,” but this suggestion is imprecise. After all, room temperature in January is likely to be quite different than in August, even considering the possible effect of central heating and air conditioning systems. The proper temperature to aim for is 55° F to 60° F for lighter-bodied reds and 60° F to 65° F for fuller-bodied wines.

How Long Does Red Wine Last?

Once opened and re-corked, a bottle stored in a cool, dark environment (like your fridge) will stay fresh and nicely drinkable for a day or two. There are products available that can extend that period by a couple of days. As for unopened bottles, optimal storage means keeping them on their sides in a moderately humid environment at about 57° F. Red wines stored in this manner will stay good – and possibly improve – for anywhere from one year to multiple decades. Assessing how long to hold on to a bottle is a complicated science. If you are planning long-term storage of your reds, seek the advice of a wine professional.
