Rosemary Lane Marselan 2019 (Languedoc, France)
The relatively unknown Marselan grape varietal is a hybrid of two grapes you might be a little more familiar with- Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache. Developed in 1961 by Paul Truel in the town of Marseillan, in the South of France, it’s no mystery how it got its name!
This wine is somewhat unusual, in that it is both dark and concentrated while also having quite a juicy, easy-drinking quality to it. On the nose we get lots of dark fruit and a hint of spice, which carries over to the palate, where lush fruit and tender tannins accompany notes of blackberry, plum, and black pepper. The surprisingly soft, round finish makes this an excellent food wine.:
Food Ideas: Feijoada, grilled lamb and fig skewers, vegetable and lentil stew, Char Siu (Chinese BBQ Pork), tavern-style burgers.
