Armit Wines is incredibly excited to add to our portfolio one of the most charismatic winemakers in France. In 1997 Robert Eden founded Chateau Maris as a multitude of small vineyards on the hillside above the village of La Livinière, the first Cru Classe of the Minervois, in the Languedoc region. The estate now extends over 32 hectares of biodynamically farmed vineyards planted with the varieties typical of this region: Syrah and Grenache Noir.
Robert’s passion for organic and biodynamic agriculture is at the very core of the DNA of Chateau Maris. His uncompromising approach to the philosophy led Chateau Maris to be the first estate in the AOC Minervois La Livinière to be fully certified biodynamic. Robert is adamant that working this way will help to secure the beauty and integrity of the vineyards for generations to come, but also allows him to produce better wines, expressive of their true terroir.
Robert’s efforts are recognised worldwide – the Wine Spectator crowned Chateau Maris “one the five most sustainable wineries in the world”.
We are incredibly excited to start working with such an inspirational and iconic winemaker and to introduce our clients to his expressive, pure wines.
