A Wine That

is all about lightness of touch. When you think of southwest French reds, you might think of big, tannic, high-alcohol wines. But here, Pauline manages to create something that is super-elegant, but still with all the earthiness and brooding characteristics of the region. There's just something about the silkiness of this wine that we can't get enough of... a masterpiece!

Marin d'Eau Douce - 2020

SW France














Fer Servadou
Cabernet Franc

Where and How?

This comes from organically farmed vines of Fer Servadou and Cabernet Franc (she has been farming organically since she took over the domaine in 2018, thus in the final steps of conversion) in the north of Aveyron. The vines are between 25 and 40 years old, and the soils are sandy and silty on granite bedrock. 

The grapes were hand harvested, after which she left them to macerate as whole bunches for a semi-carbonic maceration, leaving them untouched to create a very gentle structure in the wine. She did a long and gentle press, and the wine fermented naturally in tanks before being moved to old barrels for six months' ageing.

The Winemaker

In life, sometimes there’s a series of sliding doors scenarios, when things seem to fall into place serendipitously; when life takes you on a path you weren’t expecting. Whether or not you believe in fate, there’s no denying that Pauline Broqua’s passion — combined with meeting likeminded people in the right place and at the right time — led her to where she’s destined to be. That place is Domaine de Buis, in the remote northern Aveyron. Despite initially being a city girl, this remote part of southwest France captured her heart. Soon, she discovered that it was no longer cobbled streets and bars calling her name, but rather fauna, flora and the vines. In 2017, when a vigneron with a small domaine (and without successors) was planning his retirement, it was perfect timing. You guessed it — she hasn’t looked back, and Domaine des Buis is now Pauline’s life.

"My objective is to leave people who drink my wines with an image of the terroir; to transmit that place to the bottle."
