Once again, Maxime delivers a bottle worthy of a cult following. This Carignan-dominant blend is sourced from 100-year-old vines. It offers loads of rich, dark fruit like boozy brandied cherries and a distinct animal character that provides undeniable complexity. Drink now or hold on to it.
Maxime Magnon is one of the natural wine movement’s most exciting stories. He studied under the estimable Jean Foillard in the Beaujolais, then stumbled upon the treasure of century-old Carignan vines in the Languedoc. His Rozeta is high-toned and mineral, with silky, herb-laden fruit.
