  1. Mas d'Anglade 2015, Languedoc-Montpeyroux

    Mas d'Anglade 2015, Languedoc-Montpeyroux

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Montpeyroux is a rising appellation in Languedoc ! I really like the minerality and the generosity of its wines. The nose of Mas d'Anglade is extremely seductive thanks to its aromas of blackberry, cherry and spices. The cuvee reveals on the palate a salinity carried by great tannins which are express on a persistent and suave finish. 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    Out of the three grape varieties that make up this wine, carignan is certainly the least known. However, it often completes the blend of great southern wines, especially when it’s from old vines. Carignan wines are appreciated for their power, their generosity and the elegance of their tannic structure.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Mule track, salt road, transhumance route ... the remains that strew the area of Languedoc-Montpeyroux AOC attest to the intense life that still represents the village of Montpeyroux. The old houses set up along the narrow streets conceal for the most part of wine cellars. A village that lives to the rhythm of the vineyard and wine. We invite you to visit the Montpeyroux "Régalades de Montpeyroux", a famous festival./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The vines of Mas d'Anglade are grown on a rich soil mainly composed of clay and limestone. It is a balanced soil that combines the freshness of clay with the filtering properties of limestone. This terroir acts as a natural regulator for the vine and thus it benefits from a good water supply.

  2. Rosé de la Chevalière 2017, Mas la Chevalière, Pays d'Oc

    Rosé de la Chevalière 2017, Mas la Chevalière, Pays d'Oc

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    The cuvée de la Chevalière is my favourite rosé wine of the year ! I’m not surprised to discover that this wine comes from the renowned winery Mas la Chevalière with this gourmet aromas of currant and raspberry, enhanced by a subtle peppery touch. The freshness on the palate as well as the texture are amazing. It makes me want to spend a nice time with family or friends to enjoy this good rosé! 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    This vintage is a blend of grenache, cinsault and syrah which are the main grape varieties of the Languedoc rosés. Grenache brings opulence and roundness, syrah its spices and aromas of red fruit, and cinsault the suppleness of tannins.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    The story of Mas la Chevalière began in the 80s when Michel Laroche, winemaker in Chablis in Burgundy, discovered the great potential of the terroirs of Languedoc. The altitude, the diversity of the soil, the exhibition, everything was brought together to elaborate great wines ! Then, few years later, he decided to buy Mas la Chevalière, this beautiful property of character, and its 40 hectares of vines. Ever since, the winery has become known for the quality of its wines./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The clay-limestone and sometimes marl soils of Mas la Chevalière are very deep and thanks to this particularity, the roots of the vine can sink on several meters to reach a source of water that they do not find on the surface. This difficulty for the vine to go in deep soils, gives to the wines a lot of freshness !

  3. Château Patache d'Aux 2012, Antoine Moueix Propriétés, Médoc, Cru Bourgeois

    Château Patache d'Aux 2012, Antoine Moueix Propriétés, Médoc, Cru Bourgeois

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    Patache d'Aux is a classic Medoc that goes through the years with a unique and constant style that regularly earns the distinction of Cru Bourgeois. The garnet robe with thick tears offers smoky, tobacco and roasting aromas, then leather notes gives way to plum and blackcurrant. In the mouth, the tannins are melted and the wine is persistent. One of my must-haves ! 

    Feuille

    Grape variety

    On the left bank, in Medoc, cabernet sauvignon is the king grape. This noble grape variety provides the structure of the Medoc. To complete this grape, merlot is indispensable and brings flexibility and complexity to the cuvée. In smaller quantities we can find the petit verdot, for its structure, and the cabernet franc for its roundness.

     Anecdote

    A winemaker, a family

    Château Patache d’Aux is an old estate which belonged since the Revolution to the Delon family. In 1932, the wines made it to the Cru Bourgeois ranking and 30 years later, the Chateau was taken over by the Lapalu family. When Jean Michel Lapalu retired in 2016, the entire team of Antoine Moueix Properties took over Patache d'Aux and have the ambition of continuing to vinify quality and terroir wines./p>

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The terroir of Château Patache d'Aux is essentially composed of clay, limestone and gravels. This stony terroir is particularly filtering and can accumulate heat to restore it to the vine and helps the ripening of its berries.
