The story behind Michel Chapoutier’s latest innovation, Marius, is a family tale. He remembers his great grandfather as a man with an insatiable thirst for life – and he is the dapper gentleman who graces the label on Marius wines. Marius Chapoutier played a key role in developing the family wine enterprise, acquiring vineyards in the Hermitage area and directing construction of a new winery in 1929. Michel shares his great grandfather’s visionary spirit and passion for life, wine and food; he crafted this wine to honor him.
Soft gold in color with light green highlights, this wine’s enticing aroma of white fruit and peach leads into a full, fruity palate with lively acidity.
This wine is a bright crimson red with violet highlights and offers a powerful, complex, and spicy aroma of black fruit with a delicate vegetal touch. The body is powerful and concentrated with well-structured tannins, leading to mellow vanilla notes on the finish.
