Vineyard & Wine Region Information
Marilyn Lasserre is a genuine pioneer. Since her return to France in 2008, she has significantly contributed to the renewed success of Languedoc’s wines. Bringing her feminine touch to traditionally strong, rustic and full-bodied wines, Marilyn succeeded in improving quality and taste with a rigorous selection in the vineyards and perfect control of the winemaking process. Marylin studied Viticulture and Oenology in Bordeaux, and has spent time working in various regions throughout the world. Les Argelières is a tribute to the “Terroir” from which these wines are produced, a terroir mostly made of pebble and limestone perfectly exposed to the sun. It enhances the fruit aromas as well as the mineral style of the white wines, whilst giving the reds a vibrant fruit character. The Pays d’Oc has a history of over 2600 years of vine-growing and winemaking. Over the centuries, the wine trade became more and more structured and grew rapidly. The region greatly benefits from the Mediterranean climate, bringing warm mist, and the Black Mountain which offers limestone and clay “terroirs” with cool temperatures.

Les Argelieres cabernet franc produced in southern France is far removed from lighter wines produced from this grape in its home of the Loire valley. This offers lovely sweet raspberry fruit without the challenge of too much tannin and is great on its own or with food...lovely with pan fried duck breast. At around £8 per bottle when ordering a dozen, so qualifying for free next day delivery, it represents exceptional value. Very impressed by wine and the service and will certainly be re-ordering again!
