Marselan

Complex and intensive harmony

This red cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache Noir originated in 1961 in France and was first cultivated in Marseillan in the Languedoc, where its name is derived from. The berries yield dark-colored, full-bodied red wines with soft tannins and remarkable aging potential. In France, Marselan is cultivated on approximately 2,500 hectares, while small cultivation areas can also be found intermittently in Spain, Brazil or even Argentina.

Marselan typically provides complex wines that are very intense in color and rich in aroma, with soft and harmonious tannins. This variety's typicity, along with its high pigment and tannin contents, make it a good base for cuvées.
