Marcillac Cuvee Lairis

Marcillac Cuvee Lairis

Cuvée Lairis (100% Fer Servandou) is a delicious, albeit unusual wine which undergoes 28 days maceration in closed tanks. The nose has profound notes of cassis and elderberry with slatey/minerally hints. Lovely roundness, black berry-fruitiness on the palate underpinned by a vivid and refreshing acidity. Best served on the cool side and ideal with charcuterie and tapas.
‘ … The sanguine wines of Marcillac remind us that less is more, the delicious gutsy-savoury wines of the Aveyron and Gaillac are a million miles away from the ramped up international cuvées lying inertly in their oak coffins surrounded by their trove of competition medals. The former get the juices flowing; the others clog our arteries. Wine does not have to be pretentious to be interesting; when we drink Marcillac we believe that simplicity is an under-rated virtue.’
