Maxime-Magnon-Rose-Metisse-2015

Maxime Magnon, Rose ''Metisse'', 2015

That Maxime Magnon is part of one of the most revolutionary wine movements in France should give him a justifiable swagger to his step, yet he is nonetheless a reluctant hero. This thirty-something Burgundian was not born with hereditary rights to a domaine, but makes his own wine in the Corbières A.O.C. instead. He was fortunate to have purchased some prime parcels of old vines from abandoned plots and rents his cellar—a garagiste if ever there was one.
With his rose he incorporates direct press—Grenache Noir, Carignan, and Grenache Blanc are vinified together and Cinsault is vinified separately (different harvest date). Whole cluster fermentation lasting 10 to 12 days. Vinification in cement, raised for 6 months in 6 to 8 year old barrels. Wine undergoes malolactic fermentation.
