Mazarin 2017 from Clos Guérin

Clos Guérin is located in the Côtes-du-Rhône appellation. The winery and vineyards are located on a plateau that is affected by the famed mistral winds. 

Clos Guérin has a long heritage in the wine growing industry. As far back as the 1800s, the family was growing grapes as well as many farm products including vegetables and fruits such as peaches and figs. During the mid 1900s, they added milk production and poultry to the farm. 

When the agricultural endeavors failed to provide a proper living, the descendants turned to other pursuits including sculpting wood/oak and iron/stainless steel. Many years past and the 4th generation formed a team together agreeing to return to the family’s traditions. The beginning of the foundation of Clos Guérin began in 2013.

Currently Clos Guérin has eight hectares (19.7 acres) of vineyards. The vineyards include the grape varieties: Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvèdres. Beginning in 2017, the vineyards began to be cultivated using organic methods.

At the APVSA wine tasting in Washington DC, we had the opportunity to taste the Mazarin 2017 . This wine, with 14.5% alcohol, was produced with Grenache and  Syrah. Clos Guérin suggests this wine can be cellared for two to four years to reach its full maturity. Mazarin 2017 was a dark red blood color. The wine offered fruitiness notably black fruits. The wine was full-bodied and offered bold tannins. The finish was very fruity yielding to spices.

Importers and distributors may well want to represent the small boutique winery of Clos Guérin.
