Situated in Gaillac, Domaine Causse Marines is a 15 hectares wine estate managed by Patrice Lescarret and Virginie Maignien, both winemakers. Patrice studied oenology in Bordeaux and then worked in Sancerre and Provence. After a few years of working conventionally for others, he made the big leap and created his own estate in 1993 by buying 8 hectares of vineyards from a retiring farmer. Virginie was a student of the ESSEC business school who quit everything to enrol in a wine school in Beaune and having met Patrice whilst on a brief training stint at his vineyard never left his side again. The vineyards at Causses Marines are made of very old vines dating back to world war two. Pascal and Virginie mainly grow indigenous grape varieties such as Mauzac, Loin de L'Oeil, Ondenc and Braucol but also have plantings of Syrah. Soils are calcareous limestone on a rocky plateau. The vineyard is Demeter certified biodynamic and their philosophy is simple, look after the land and let the wines make themselves.

livingwine.com.au (2017 Vintage)
"Peyrouzelles is a red wine blended mainly from Braucol, Duras and Syrah the first two of which are native to the area around Gaillac.

Patrice Lescarret also says that this wine has a ‘bit of everything’ (un peu de tout) including the rare Alicante (a grape with very dark red flesh), the very rare Prunelart (also a dark-coloured grape) and Jurancon! These are all traditional grape varieties of the Gaillac region that Patrice is reviving.

Peyrouzelles has been a perennial favourite in Australia. The wine is dark and brooding, reminding Australians of their native bigger wines. The Peyrouzelles is big, dark and brooding but also light and elegant on the palate. It is a wine that marries well with lots of dishes without overpowering them.

It is an easy-drinking style that is perfect now but which will keep for another year or two as the tannins soften. You will be surprised by the depth of flavour of this well-priced wine even though it is only 12% alcohol this vintage.

Domaine de Causse Marines is the domaine of Patrice Lescarret who lives in the tiny village of Vieille just outside Gaillac where he makes beautiful wines using grapes that are indigenous to the region.

If you look at wine lists from any of the top wine bars from The Ten Bells in New York to Coinstot Vino the trendy cave-à-manger in the lovely Passage des Panoramas in Paris you will find the wines of Patrice. The instantly recognisable and humorous wine labels with their irreverent, but obscure, jibes at French bureaucracy may give the impression that they are a jovial lot at Causse Marines – and they are! However, he is also very serious wine maker who is committed to restoring the Gaillac region to its former glory.

The vineyards fall within the appellation of Gaillac which lies a short drive north of the south-west city of Toulouse. The vineyards are tended biodynamically with no pesticides or fungicides or artificial fertilizers used."

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
