"Rose-Marie" is a saignee of Merlot from the iconic "Barthelemy" cuvee (produced from their highest-altitude and poorest-soiled site), aged in old demi-muids and dynamized (wherein the lees are painstakingly stirred into the wine according to the lunar cycle, thereby fortifying it against oxidation) for eight months with no additions whatsoever; it is bottled without clarification, filtration, or added sulfur. Rose-Marie pours a deeply bejeweled hue and offers startlingly vivid fruit and incredible complexity on the palate. Le Puy produces but a few hundred six-packs each vintage.
