The Wine Wire: 2010 Mas Jullien Blanc


 

 

Unusual and unexpected, this white wine from esteemed producer Mas Jullien in Jonquières, just north of Montpellier in the Languedoc, is made from Clairette, Carginan Blanc Chenin Blanc, Grenache Blanc & Roussanne. It is creamy and fresh all at once. We love what owner Olivier Jullien writes regarding his farming and winemaking philosophies:

 “take the time necessary to allow nature to complete its work; accompany the life of the wine without directing it, accepting the risks and differences; maintain impeccable hygiene and meticulously carry out each task in the cellar; leave the option open to react and follow instinct and curiosity; choose techniques and material that do not distort the wine; and have faith in the competence of the people who help produce the wines.”
