Personality: Bright and electric – it has the typical drinkability of Melon, but also an extra depth of the old vines. Great ageing potential – as the winemaker says, a 10yo Miss Terre is perfect!

Vineyard: 50-80 years old vines on mica-schist, farmed organically by Marc and his team.

Making of: Grapes are harvested by hand at their maximum ripeness and destemmed. The fruit undergoes a very slow and gentle pressing, and the wine rests on the lees in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for 12 months. Bottled unfined, with a bit of sulfur and a light filtration through terre diatomé.

Winemaker's Note: Miss Terre is Marc’s top-range wine, made from his oldest vines of Melon. The vineyards grow on a whole array of terroirs (8 different kinds of soils); he previously blended them all together into one cuvée, but decided to showcase their nuances by vinifying and bottling each of the different soils separately, since 2019. “This has always been a gastronomical wine. As the food in good restaurants has become lighter, finer, more filigree, I felt that my wine should reflect that and offer a similar amount of details and nuance,” Marc explains.
