  • TASTING NOTE / ABOUT THE WINE: Subtle and refined elegance, pretty with notes of rose flowers. This is lifted and perfumed almost in an old Burgundy way with plenty of vibrancy, spices and savoury earthy aromas. Lot's of nuances here, everything evolves as you enjoy the wine slowly in your glass. Be patient let the wine come to you. The palate is lighter, almost Jura red vibes here, plenty of life and energy, definitely a wine that touch me when I first tasted Marius Bielle's wines. The tannins are soft and elegant, the wine moreish, filled with red fruits and smaller black berries. This wine doesn't speak loudly, yet it has a special type of depth of flavour. An experience of its own, a must try. 
  • ABOUT THE WINE: The 2011 Bordeaux vintage was generally average in comparison to the iconic 2010 and 2009 however this is for me one of the highlight from this vintage I had the chance to taste. What a wine, now 12 years old, it has aged with grace and I couldn't recommend it enough as I also believe its good value for the caliber of wine it is. Natural fermentation, the wine is aged in concrete tanks with lofi winemaking yet the wines is elegant and precise. Unfined, unfiltred. Low sulphur.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Domaine Marius Bielle was founded in the 1940's in Lalande-de-Pomerol. In this area, a grape maligned in other wine growing regions is seen as the king. Here, Merlot rules them all. There are no blends, the wines are 100% Merlot, a ‘one terroir, one cepage’ approach championed by Burgundy. 

    It is this approach that allows current vigneron Damien Bielle (grandson of Marius) to focus on making wines that highlight the nuances of this grape. Graduating as an agronomist engineer, he went onto oenology school in Bordeaux and then worked for the most prestigious Merlot and Cabernet producers in the world - Chateau Petrus (Pomerol) and Chateau Cheval Blanc (Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classe), before finally deciding to return to the family estate to create his own expression in 2020. The process starts on the famous Pomerol soils of sand and gravel, with 13 hectares of organically farmed vineyard (certified 2021). Weaved in between the oceans of surrounding vines, you’ll find the Domaine Marius Bielle ecosystem - breaking the monotony with trees, grass and flowers growing in the vineyard, freeing space to create orchards, vegetable gardens and allowing a few animals in the vines. When vintage rolls around, the grapes are handpicked and sorted, before maceration by infusion, and a slow natural fermentation with vinification occuring in stainless steel tanks. Like a painter in his workshop, it’s a moment of focus and presence - creating a sketch of the vintage. The ‘slow but steady’ ethos continues through to aging, using concrete tanks to gently and softly raise his Merlot.  Damien grew up in contact with les “vins d’avant”, an old school style of wine in the best of ways, those wines that took the time of aging in the cellar and then in bottles before being released. This has without doubt influenced his winemaking, insisting the wines reveal themselves in time, finding their complexity along the way and without the use of sulphur, filtering or fining.
