Corinne and Damien Deneufbourg produce their elegant, structured wines in the Côtes Catalanes in Roussillon. Hyphenated as Languedoc-Roussillon, Roussillon is in fact a distinct cultural area with a proud Catalan identity, and Côtes Catalanes is located about 20 miles north of the Spanish border in the Pyrénées-Orientales. This is a wine region to watch, producing lots of interesting and delicious bottles! A cross between cabernet sauvignon and grenache, created in 1961 for its resistance to fungal diseases, the marselan grape possesses the best characteristics of both parent grapes. Charming dark fruit flavors (thanks to the cabernet) meld with the easy drinking texture and lighter tannins of grenache. This example is bigger in body, with hints of earth, cocoa, and cedar, along with good acidity and moderately firm tannins.
