Vineyards & Viticulture
The plot is in the commune of Maury, at the bottom of a valley (hence the name Coume Marie. ‘Coume’ means valley in Catalan), on black schist soil. The slope is significant, with different exposures to the east and to the west. Thanks to its location, the vines benefit from the cooling influence of the mountains, yielding a full-bodied, but fresh and balanced wine.
Harvest & Vinification
The press juice is blended with the entire cuvée. The cuvée is aged in 228 L oak barrels for 12 months. Racked on a root day, waning moon, sheltered from the air, and assembled in stainless steel vats, where it rests for four months before bottling.
