Les Argelieres is a range of modern, fruity varietal wines from the Languedoc. Producer Marilyn Lasserre is a genuine pioneer. Since her return to France in 2008, she has significantly contributed to the renewed success of Languedoc’s wines. Bringing her feminine touch to traditionally strong, rustic and full-bodied wines, Marilyn succeeded in improving quality and taste with a rigorous selection in the vineyards and perfect control of the winemaking process. Les Argelières is a tribute to the “Terroir” from which these wines are produced, a terroir mostly made of pebble and limestone perfectly exposed to the sun. It enhances the fruit aromas giving the reds a vibrant fruit character.

Tasting Notes

Bright yellow with green hues, apricot and mango aromas mixed up with a whiff of rose petals and almonds. A juicy palate with herbal hints and a lingering finish.

Awards

  • Jancis Robinson, 2016, 14.5/20 points: "Loud, primary, pineapple-candy nose. Strong structure."
