We often hear that the sea has an influence on the vines and ultimately on the wine itself but let's be honest. It's rarely something that really translates into the glass for most people. Mire la Mer is a wine made from parcels located near the Mediterranean Sea and in that case, its influence is insane. Besides the luscious black currant notes, truffles, leather and anise, the notes of sea weed and oyster water stand out. We can almost feel the breeze of salty air coming from the salt marshes of Peyriac. It is undoubtedly a gastronomique wine. Beautiful pairing ahead with oysters but I do believe that his defined identity deserves a bold and audacious pairing.

Ready to drink but it definitely has ageing potential.

Vintage: A mild and wet winter was followed by a warm spring, bringing early
bud burst. A cold snap in early April brought a week of severe frost, causing damage to low lying vines. Good soil moisture during May encouraged early flowering. June and July were extremely hot and dry causing hydric stress and reducing cropping potential. Some early August rain rushed the low cropping vines to early maturity. The resulting
fruit was high in acidity with great phenolic ripeness.
