Producer and Tasting Notes


Marilyn Lasserre

Marilyn 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. Marylin studied Viticulture and Oenology in Bordeaux, and has spent time working in various regions throughout the world. 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 as well as the mineral style of the white wines, whilst giving the reds a vibrant fruit character. The Pays d’Oc has a history of over 2600 years of vine-growing and winemaking. Over the centuries, the wine trade became more and more structured and grew rapidly. The region greatly benefits from the Mediterranean climate, bringing warm mist, and the Black Mountain which offers limestone and clay “terroirs” with cool temperatures.

Tasting Notes

Glossy garnet red in the glass, on the nose there are aromas of raspberry and cherry with subtle smoky and peppery hints, Fruity, elegant and well-balanced on the palate with a silky long finish.
