Justinien – red wine IGP Var

Justinien is a red wine with an IGP (protected geographic location) quality label. Certified Demeter, vegan and organic, this wine is grown, vinified and bottled at the Domaine de la Marseillaise. A wonderful tribute to our ancestor Justinien Moutte…

A wine which pays tribute…

This red IGP wine carries the name of Fabienne’s grandfather, Justinien Moutte, under whose management the Domaine de la Marseillaise flourished between the two world wars, and to whom we pay tribute by this 2017 cuvée.

I, Pierre Sautou, wanted to make a wine how I love wine: voluptuous, fruity, and well balanced, not needing to be drunk with a meal to be enjoyed.

A wine to drink purely for the pleasure.
