Berry good! The carbonic maceration brings soft, crunchy tannins and a glou-glou vibe with lots of expressive red and black fruit. The perfect summer red to be enjoyed thoroughly chilled.

The name of this wine refers to Sebastien, Marine’s vineyard helper and creator of this wine – his rugby nickname is Le iench, the verlan version of chien, the French word for dog (verlan is a type of French slang where the syllables are reversed). 

Grape: Duras

About the Winemaker:
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 first vintage delivers precise, flavorful and refined wines that 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.

Before starting the 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.
