Every now and then you come across a wine that isn't light and isn't heavy, it's not somewhere inbetween either. These fulfil the category of unicorn wines for me. They dance between full flavour and intensity while still maintaining a liveliness and even a surreal life of their own. These wines are some of the most satisfying and hence revered. Enter Mas Jullien.
50% Carignan Blanc, 20% Grenanche Blanc, 10% Chenin Blanc, 5% Clairette, 5% Viognier and 10% various other exotic varieties. What a blend and what a wine. Highly sort after by the most cult collectors from around the world. Layer upon layer of character builds this southern French white into one of the most serious wines you'll ever come across. Drink now and over the next 20 years. - Chris L
Owner and winemaker Olivier Jullien is a pioneer of the Languedoc. When he took over the family domaine in 1985, he was one of the only believers of the potential of the Terrasses du Larzac (large terraces on the edge of the Cevennes plateau, north of Montpellier) to produce great wines from the Midi. 25 years later, he controls over 18 hectares of unique vineyard sites, managed following the principles of Biodynamic winemaking.
The soils of the different vineyards vary from argilo-calcaires (clay over limestone) for the reds, pebbles for the whites and sandstones for the new Carlan cuvee. - Importer Note
