Syrah & Duras Blend
Marine Leys, a talented and promising winemaker in the Tarn, farms 5 hectares of hillside vines planted to Duras, Syrah, Braucol, Mauzac, Loin de l'oeil and Gamay. Before starting La Vignereuse, she had worked for years behind the camera in film production across Europe, where she then moved to Canada, Ireland, and eventually, Turkey. It was there that Marine found herself helping her employer plant a vineyard. She worked in the cellar and eventually handled the winemaking after studying in Beaune. In 2012, Marine made her way to Gaillac to work and learn under the guidance of her friends, the legendary Plageoles family. In 2014, she found 5 hectares of vines in Andillac and the Vignereuse project was launched. Her precise, flavorful and refined wines speak both to the quality of the Gaillac as one of the most underrated AOP in France, and to her skills as a young winemaker.
