The field:
The Clos Marie is an area at the foot of the Languedoc Pic Saint the Loupdans.
LeClos Mary has 1995une range of wines coveted demanding lovers. In white and red, each wine expresses brilliantly the nuances of their terroirs, in the Pic Saint-Loup appellation in the hillsides of the Languedoc appellation. A work rewarded by a constantly increasing quality that makes today the Clos Marie an essential area of the appellation Saint Wolf Pic.

It's on 24 ha in total (including 20 currently in production) that officiating, for a little more than ten years, one of the brightest winemakers of the Languedoc Christophe Peyrus and his Epousefrancoise Julien. Christophe marine Peyrus "The Royal" until 1992, knew that his return to shore would be on land. Land to vineyards, preferably in the Pic Saint Loup, by family opportunity (the vines of Marie, Françoise's grandmother) and also for the love of this land. It is precisely in 1992 that Christophe Peyrus formed alongside the best winemakers of the time, moved to Lauret to 40 km from Montpellier, one of the thirteen communes to benefit from the AOC Pic Saint Loup, the name of this small mountain in the foothills of Cévennes, culminating at 658 m whose vineyards are planted there at an altitude varying from 150 to 350 m. LeClos Mary, as on the other properties of the Pic Saint Loup, three varieties are King, the Grenache, ancestral in Languedoc, Syrah, introduced in the 1960s and Mourvèdre, which there appears only in the 1980s. The domain has other traditional regional varieties as very old Carignan and Cinsault.

Arriving at the field, Christophe Peyrus first incurred, as most of the major current winemakers in the region, a severe control of the vineyard to gradually move the great current wine cooperative wine. The production in particular cellar starts in 1994, on the 7 ha in production at the time. All beginnings are characterized by an intense activity of plantation and soon, 5 ha are replanted using Massal of high quality with higher densities. For Christophe Peyrus, helped 7 people full-time, thinking about wine is above all a reflection on the vine. That's why he chose definitively tillage, hand harvest or to gradually move the fight reasoned biodynamic. It is this focus on plant material, associated with great expertise in the cellar, which allows him to get four vintages of red, two white wines and a cuvée Rosé of bleeding of great elegance, each in its category. In red, the first vintage is the Olivette planted on old olive groves, vines produce a wine that evolves in amazing way to aromas of black olives, tapenade and Lincoln. The great vintage, she took the name of the son Simon it is distinguished by a smoke and citrus notes that sign the great terroirs of the Pic Saint Loup. There is also an issue land leased since 1999 wine Farms of the Closand an almost confidential wine out in great vintages and who took the name of a French island in the Indian ocean the glorious. Finally, the white wines, one is produced under the name of the sister of Simon result Manon mainly Roussane sur-greffée as well as a few other local varieties, is the other is produced under the name the Farms of the Clos fruit of a Assembly of white Carignan, Clairette and Rolle.

If the age of the vines plays a role in the assignment of the grape to the various vintages, is firstly the terroir that Christophe Peyrus wants to express. In the commune of Lauret are effect present three types of ground, first the scree of Piedmont (ground old, enough clay of the tertiary era), who enter 50%in the vintage Simon, second in the scree of the Quaternary and other third from soils of the Quaternary of the disintegration of bedrock. These last, clay-Marly, also enter 50%of the vintage Simon. If the work in the vineyard is paramount, the work in the cellar is less neat and this in every detail, from the scrupulous choice of corks to barrels, which come from two Coopers Saury and François and three main forests of oak Allier and Tronçais nièvre. The sulphur is used at a minimum (5 to 6 g/L at the entrance and 1, 5 g/L to bottling). The wine is very little racked, in General once after the malolactic fermentation. Farms are long, two winters for Simon (that is bottled in June) and three for The glorious. This long maturing and cold help stabilize the wine and avoid the collages or filtering and wine attests to the intensity of care that contribute to its development.

The wines of Clos Marie avoid the powerful and demonstrative style to focus on finesse and the expression of the terroir. The entire range, from the olive grove to the formidable cuvées farms and Simon Clos Marie reflect their terroir of origin with grace. If they became affordable in their prime after a decanting wines of Clos Marie express their full potential after a few years of cellaring.
