A rich brick red with an almost opaque core presents, rusting out subtly towards the rim, venerable maturity without showing age.
Mmmm. This is how good a bouillon cube can be. Besides dark fruit notes like rosehip, blackberry and plum jam, the wine is driven by pronounced spice. The aromas of roasted onion, root vegetables such as carrot and celery as well as black garlic and lovage blend together as if in a beef jus. Unobtrusively, the wine reveals its broad spectrum of aromas.
The power of Marlène No 3 by Peyre Rose from 2007 is full and fills the room. Yet it comes quietly because the delicacy of its maturity gives it grandeur and mild elegance. The wine has, in its origin, a taut but harmoniously integrated tannin structure. The mild but essential acidity gives the wine vitality and takes on the role of the best supporting actor.
