This is an easy to drink and delicious wine. It has bright fruit with nice spice flavors and is balanced out with a dry finish. Easy to drink alone the L'Attilon Marselan will go well with simple foods.

Was originally at an 3.5 - but this is shy youngster, just coming out of it's shell. It's telling because of what the future holds...and it is bright indeed. A hybrid from cabernet sauvignon and grenache. You'd be thinking dark berry fruit, spice, pepper, tannins - maybe additional earthy notes, wood and vanilla & chocolate. You'd also be right. The tannins are rounded and gripping and nose & palate are tied together well. Juicy and medium bodied this is wonderful. A real feather in the K&L hat.Long live marselan. Paul
Drink from 2012 to 2016

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Provence

- Provence encompasses the southeastern portion of France that borders the Mediterranean. The largest appellation in the region is the Cotes de Provence that spans 49,600 acres of land in and around Marseilles. Thirteen different varietals are grown in this appellation with the most important grapes being Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, and Mouvedre. While much of the production is dry rose, there are many more serious wines being made from the area.
