More Info: The current owner of Château de la Marjolière, Isabelle Rey-Auriat, is the daughter, granddaughter and great granddaughter of family winemakers and an only daughter. She grew up locally, in Quercy but it was after completing her academic studies in business in Toulouse that she decided to  take over the 14-hectare family property of Château Haut d'Aglan, in Soturac. This was back in 1994, her first vintage. Isabelle also owns the neighbouring vineyards of Château de la Marjolière whose four hectares of vines are situated mid-slope at 200 metres on the right bank of the river Lot, on a clay-limestone soil. The south facing aspect ensures that the vines benefit from the maximum number of hours of sunshine. The three year conversion to being certified organic was completed in 2011. Isabelle chooses to age the wine in concrete vats for 12 months. The wine undergoes a natural clarification before bottling without filtering or fining. The aim is to reflect the grapes' natural flavour as purely as possible - for the wine to express the essence of its origins.
