Product Description

Chateau de Mus Languedoc Rouge La Source is made from  40% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre.

This wine has a nice dark ruby color, with aromas of red fruits and some florals and spicy notes. The tannins are soft and juicy, giving the wine a great richness and complexity.

Chateau de Mus Languedoc Rouge La Source is made from grapes coming from several parcel planted 15 years ago on gravel soil, similar to the terroir found in the Graves. 

In order to achieve perfect ripeness, harvest were conducted quite late in the season as the producer is looking for a nice concentration of aromas and sugar. Then, the vinification was traditional, meaning the fermentation was done in concrete tank followed by a long ageing process, during 8-10 months, in stainless steel tanks.

Will be a great companion to grilled meat, grilled vegetables and cheese.

Winery: Chateau de Mus

The Chateau de Mus is located in Murviel-Les-Beziers in the Languedoc region.It is home to a gorgeous Renaissance-style castle.

The Julien Family has been working hard in the vineyards, in the cellars, but they also have a restoration project for the chapel and the castle located on the property. Today, Yannick and Brice are representing the 5th generation of winemakers in the Family.

Date Founded: 2004

Owner: Bernard and Marina JULIEN, and their sons, Yannick, today Maître de Chai, and Brice, Sales and Export Manager
Winery Philosophy: The Julien's Family is dedicated to producing modern wines using traditionnal grape varietals. In order to achieve this goal, they believe in clean and fully ripen fruit, destemming, temperature controlled vinification, as well as sustainable viticulture.

Dating back at least 800 BC, the Château de Mus represents one of the largest archaeological sites in Hérault, illustrating the prehistoric, Celtic, Roman, Greek and Etruscan ages. The estate was named after an ancient fortified place called « Murus » («city wall» in Latin), built up on a promontory over the Orb river. At MUS, a Romanesque church was built in 1070 (today its restoration is in progress) such as one of the six first castles of the area. Twice destroyed during the crusade against the Cathars in the 13th C. the former mansion was replaced in 1848 by a Renaissance-style castle, prefiguring the great times of the “wine chateaux” in Languedoc.
The JULIEN'S bought the CHATEAU DE MUS in 2004

Mas des Capitelles Faugeres Vieilles Vignes 2015

Mas des Capitelles Faugeres Vieilles Vignes  is made from 50% Mourvedre, 25% Carignan and 25% Syrah

Deep inky color in the glass. Aromas of raspberry, cherry and hints of vanilla round out the nose. Medium to full-bodied and very well structured with ripe chewy tannins. Flavors of peppery humus, cherry and hints of leather flow towards a lengthy & spicy finish.

Morambro Creek Cabernet 2012

Morambro Creek Cabernet is 100 percent Cabernet

Deep purple in color. A rich elegant nose of cassis with overtones of vanilla and coffee. Lush, ripe palate dominated by black fruits, cherry and chocolate. Full bodied with savory, integrated fruit tannins and persistent finish.

Vintage Overview: 2012 was a very good season with predominantly mild, dry days. Yields were generally low and this did result in some excellent parcels of fruit being harvested. Vine-balance was carefully monitored, resulting in fruit that demonstrates the vibrancy and fruit-derived characters that we strive for in our wines.

Winemaking at Morambro Creek is very traditional and labour intensive. Oak maturation takes place using 35% new French barrels. This blend was put together using select barrels from our family  estate that best demonstrate the intensity of our fruit balanced by integrated oak.

Total Acidity: 6.6 g/L 
pH: 3.49

Secrets des Princes Chateauneuf Du Pape Rouge 2013

This wine was named after the secret cuvee the Princes of Orange were keeping for their private consumption and sharing on special occasions. Long before the appellation Chateauneuf du Pape was created, the princes of Orange were enjoying the fine wines from this area. This wine made from a blend of 90% Grenache, 5% Mourvèdre, and 5% Syrah exhibits aromas of ripe black fruits, liquorice with a smooth texture and perfect balance. Ideal with grilled steaks, beef stews and cheeses.

Soil : Clay and siliceous with round pebbles on the surface.

Average age of the vines: 45 years.
Vinification : Total destemming. Cold pre-fermentation maceration during 4 days at 12°C then long maceration during 20 to 25 days with regular punching over and daily release- temperature controlled at 28°C to 30°C . 
Vinified and matured in stainless in order to show the purest expression of the Grenache and the terroir.

Michelet Chablis Premier Cru Beauroy 2015

The nose offers rich and intense aromas of rose petals and litchi. The wine is well-structured and generous in the mouth with subtle notes of dried fruits and honey. A long mineral finish.

Machine harvested at full maturity (around Sept. 25th - lasts 12-18 days); pneumatic press; fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 8-10 days; M.L (2 months after the harvest); aging on the lees until May (3 month extra compared to the Petit Chablis); racking; fining if necessary; cold stabilization; filtration right before bottling in July.

A great match with fine fish in creamy sauce or white meat stuffed with mushrooms. The complex and subtle aromas make this wine and ideal accompaniment to delicate and refined seafood dishes - lobsters and crayfish. Let it age a little and its richness will be appreciated with foie gras.

Review:

"A stony, minerally undercurrent knits the ripe peach, apple and honey flavors together, while the bright structure keeps this focused. Shows fine balance and length. Drink now through 2023. – B.S."

Vitanza Brunello di Montalcino Tradizione 2011

The Brunello di Montalcino is a very sensual and appealing wine. It boasts a ripe and upfront style: What it gives up in typicity, it makes up for in approachability. It shows a brooding dark color, thick extraction and meaty consistency. Dusty mineral notes of terracotta and crushed granite offer a brief prelude to thicker aromas of cured meat, leather and dark fruit. There's a good degree of succulent sweetness thanks to the abundant tones of prune and plum. The plate is richly layered and velvety.

Age of the vines: 15 years.

Wine-making: Pre-soaking in a cold temperature for three days; pump-overs following the density and the temperature under computer control. Bottle refinement: 12 Months


"A ripe, velvety Brunello with lots of plum and cherry character. Full body, velvety tannins and a fresh finish. Ends with toasted coconut and berry. Supple young Brunello. Drink now. - James Suckling"
