Marc Castan lives in Leucate in France’s Aude department. This future enfant terrible was born in Narbonne, where he grew up impassioned by both land and sea. After choosing to study viticulture and oenology, he inherited his grandfather’s vines. So began his adventure in wine, which initially was limited to selling his grapes to the local cooperative. But in time, Marc developed a desire to vinify himself, to accompany his grapes from vine to bottle. Today, his estate is certified organic, and his vineyards spread over the communes of La palme and Leucate, mainly between the sea and the edge of the lagoon. Marc keeps his yields low, between 8 and 30 hl/ha, and his winemaking has been almost entirely natural since 2009, with just a pinch of sulphur added at bottling to ensure his juice remains perfectly stable once it's corked! While others fight against global warming, Marc wages his war on thirst, offering a super range of wines for you and your buddies!
A nose with notes of blueberry, blackberry, cocoa, and sweet spices... Powerful, full-bodied, with beautiful freshness on the finish. Decanting is almost mandatory, this is a wine that needs to breathe, so don't rush this one!
