Cave de Tain Marsanne Rhone VDP
Fresh and delicate Marsanne from Northern Rhone Valley France
Made with no oak, and no malolactic fermentation this is a pure expression of the Marsanne grape. Pungent nose of yellow fruit, nettle, stone and subtle florals. Delicate palate weight and a fresh finish.
Cave de Tain is a large Co-Operative producer based in the town of Tain L’Hermitage – the wine centre of the Northern Rhone Region, and located at the foot of the infamous ‘Hermitage’ hill. Cave de Tain combines the strength of more than 100 individual growers, with more than 1,000 hectares of vines across the Northern Rhone. They are the largest producer of AOC quality Syrah in Europe and a Syrah specialist. Growers are rewarded based on the quality of the grapes they produce, with higher tier wines selected from superior sites - the top wines produced from the thin stony soils and steep terraced vineyard sites of Hermitage. They are proud to be the recipients of the 'Co-Op Winery of the Year' from the Revue de Vin de France in January 2015, and highly rated by Jancis Robinson and infamous wine journal 'The Wine Advocate'.
