    Mas des Caprices "Retour aux Sources" Fitou '15

    Languedoc Roussillon

    Mas des Caprices "Retour aux Sources" Fitou '15

    Established by Mireille and Pierre Mann, who left their careers as chefs in Alsace in the early 2000s, Mas des Caprices is in Leucate, a peninsula facing the French Riviera. The area falls within the red-wine appellation of Fitou, in the Languedoc region of southern France, and is influenced by mountainous terrain as well as the Mediterranean Sea. A biodynamic producer that has been certified organic since 2009, Mas des Caprices is focused on making authentic wines through careful work in the vineyard and respect for the natural environment.  


    The 2015 “Retour aux Sources” is a blend of 50% Carignan, which contributes tannin and color; 30% Grenache, which adds aromas such as candied fruit, raspberry, and cinnamon; and 20% Mourvèdre, which brings notes of dark fruit and spice, and a slightly gamey character. The wine was aged for 12 months in two-thirds concrete tank and one-third oak cask. “Retour aux Sources” is rustic in the tradition of the area’s wines, with the final blend showing notes of dark fruit, garigue, rosemary, and smoke. Pair the wine with hearty soups and stews, roasted meats, or sausage and bean dishes.
