Description

Marc Delienne Fleurie "Greta Carbo" 2019

Marc Delienne Fleurie "Greta Carbo" is a cuvée vinified by carbonic maceration. Stylish, sophisticate and gorgeously seductive, this fun Gamay will set your heart aflutter! Denser than Marc Delienne's other wines, this cuvee shows wonderful structure. Perfect balance of savoury yet smooth, sweet earthy tannins mingle amongst the plush pool of fruit flavours. 

100% Gamay. The fruit for this wine comes from the South-East part of the Fleurie vineyard. The soils are sandy-loam stemming from primary rocks (granite) or ancient alluvium, at shallow depth. These black Gamay vines are around 60-years-old, with a density of 10,000 vines/hectare and pruned using the gobelet method.

Manual harvesting of the grapes in small boxes and sorting in the cellar. Chilling of the grapes at 5°C, then they are delicately vatted. The concrete tank is saturated with carbon dioxide, closed and maintained at 8°C. Daily juice extraction. Pressing after 3 weeks and fermentation ends in stainless steel vats. The wine then ages for 4 months in barrels. 

Ageing potential: Drink now or cellar until 2030.
