Ch. MARIS Wine Class and Tasting Featuring Robert Eden, Maris Winemaker and Co-Owner

On Monday, October 14th at 7pm, please join me in welcoming Robert Eden, winemaker and co-owner of Ch. Maris to The Wine School at l’Alliance Française for a discussion and tasting of his organic and biodynamic wines from the Minervois cru of La Liviniere. I have recently tasted through this range and found them to be some of the most interesting and delicious wines I have tasted over the last five years. These are wines of purity and depth ranging in price from $13.99 to $75.99. These may well be the best wines you’ve never heard of.

The line-up includes:
Maris Vermintino 2018
Maris Rouge Organic 2018
Maris Zulu Organic 2018
Chateau Maris Les Combes 2017
Chateau Maris La Touge 2017
Chateau Maris Savoir Vieillir 2018
Chateau Maris Les Planels 2016
Chateau Maris Les Anciens 2016
Chateau Maris Dynamic 2016
Chateau Maris Les Amandiers 2016
