Wine of golden color.
The taste of wine is illuminating, fragrant, light, well balanced, with tones of citrus and tropical fruits, notes of flowers and minerals.
The aroma of wine is dominated by shades of citrus fruits and white flowers.
The wine is well combined with seafood, carpaccio and tartar with fish.
Haut Marin, "Amande" Colombard & Sauvignon is a clean, refreshing, well-balanced white semi-dry wine made from grapes grown on clay-limy soils in the Cat de Gascony. Grapes in the domain of Marin harvested at night, in cool hours, to preserve all the aromas of the fruit. After maceration and pressing in a nitric medium, the wort is fermented at a low temperature. Young wine is aged for some time on the draft in steel tanks.
Family Familles Jegerlehner et Prataviera has been working in the vineyards of Gascony for almost a century. Three generations of the family invested a lot of energy and labor to create elegant wines from grapes with an exceptional terroir. It all began in 1920, when the Swiss wine grower Jean François Morel settled in Gascony and began to grow grapes. Then his estate occupied 10 hectares. In 1960, his daughter Denise and her husband Jean Zhegenerer settled in the estate. Their common passion for winemaking allowed to expand the area of vineyards and build new cellars of the winery.
In 1988, the daughter of Denise and Jean-Elizabeth, the enologist for education, began to manage the family business, just like the parents who are in love with vineyards and wine. She was helped by her husband - Henri Pratavier. Couple very quickly turned real estate into a large Domain, which has about 150 hectares of vineyards, classified as Côtes de Gascogne IGP. Today, the annual volume of Domain's production is more than 1300000 bottles, of which about 50% are exported. The company's range of wines and armagnacs is divided into three brands: Domain O Marin, Domain de Menard and Chateau Menard. The company Zemerlener e Pratavier relies on his development, progresses, modernizes and extends his fame.
