Why do we celebrate World Marselan Day?

world marselan day

World Marselan Day was initiated by Jim Boyce, the creator of the Grape Wall of China website, who wanted to raise awareness about this lesser-known grape. Jim aims to encourage people to taste wines made from Marselan, promote the growers and winemakers who specialize in it, and create a social media presence that will help generate interest in the grape. Celebrating Marselan on the birthday of Paul Truel, creator of the Marselan, also helps recognize his contribution.

Have you tried Marselan wine before? It’s medium-bodied with fine tannins. You’ll notice its good color along with the characteristics of cherry and cassis. Also, it’s an excellent base for blending because of its polyphenol, anthocyanin, and tannin potential.

Where did the Marselan grape come from?

Marselan grape is a hybrid of Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache. It was created in France back in 1961.

What food pairs well with Marsanne wine?

If you’re wondering what food goes well with Marsanne wine, you might want to try roasted meat with Provencal-style veggies or pork casseroles with chorizo, beans, and potatoes. This wine also pairs nicely with strong cheeses that have intense aromas. For a hearty meal, you can go for roasted lamb with garlic and rosemary or pork and black bean stew (feijoada). If you’re a vegetarian, then you can try a lightly spiced vegetable and lentil stew.
