Product Details

A cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache, this relatively young French varietal displays the best characteristics of both parents. Marselan is deeply colored with a powerful nose of jammy red and black fruits and spice. The palate delivers rich ripe fruit flavors of blackberry, plum, and black currant with spicy notes, balanced acidity, and well-rounded tannins. Supple, smooth, and seductive.

Sweetness: Dry | Body: Medium-Full | Oak: Medium | Alcohol: 13% ABV

About the region:
Languedoc, France
This is the true home of Marselan; it was developed here in 1961 and takes its name from Marseillan, a coastal village near where it was first bred and planted. Soils vary across the large region with limestone and clay the most common. The Mediterranean climate, with hot sunny days tempered by cool sea breezes at night, makes the Languedoc a perfect place for growing grapes.

Signature food pairing: Grilled Lam & Fig Skewers
A creamy bed of hummus soaks up the flavors of the grilled lamb and vegetables. Pour an extra glass of Winexpert™ LE21 Marselan and savor this dish to the last bite.

The recipe and instructional pdf can be found here.

Additional food pairing suggestions:
Charcuterie, grilled meat (bbq, burgers, pork chops), fresh lasagna with pesto, lamb navarin, dark chocolate desserts

Includes bottle labels.

Great kit with grapes!

An Interesting French Experiment

I am anxious to see what a bit of age does with this. Drinkable at bottling time. A middleweight red with some complexity. I used about 60% of the supplied oak. Lighter than a Merlot and just the right amount of what I call mustiness to remind you it's French.

Marselan Red

We have mixed the wine and it is in clearing stage. It is a beautiful deep color and the smell during mixing was wonderful! We are anxiously awaiting a tasting!
