2020 June 20 - "Instagram Interview with our Viticulturist, Glen Creasy" --------------

 

Our viticulturist, Dr Glen Creasy, was interviewed by US-based sommelier Jeff Harding on Instagram last week, and more than just learning about his background and how he ended up in France, there was also discussion around why Riesling is more tolerant of winter-time cold temperatures and why grapes make such a nice wine compared to other fruits. The discussion also turned to AOP Terrasses du Larzac, why younger winemakers tend to make a different, non-traditional, styles of wine and the red grape called Aramon, which used to be a major part of the area in the Languedoc, but fell out of favour about 70 years ago...

Aside from that, you can learn about Terre des 2 Sources, including the how our name came to be!

2019 September 06 - "Making a Point" -------------------------------------------------------------

On September 6th, Le Point Magazine published a special report on Languedoc wines, choosing to include our Château de la Devèze Monnier Blanc 2018 (AOP Languedoc).

 

White wines have a special place in our hearts, and here in our little valley. Our higher elevation, in combination with weather influenced by the Cévennes mountains, means our vines and their fruit spend the nights being a little colder, which helps to retain acidity, which is an important part of being able to create elegant and balanced wines.

Utilising four (Roussanne, Ugni blanc, Vermentino and Viognier) varieties from different parcels and by putting about 20% of the blend in old oak barrels, Kirsten, our winemaker, was able to create a wine of interest and distinction.

Le Point's tasting notes describe the wine as having a nose slightly candied and with yellow peach, citrusy and lemon notes, and a smooth, fine round and harmonious palate with a spicy finish.⁠

As with most of our other wines, the best this wine has to offer can be discovered by judicious food pairing. We suggest matching it with creamy fish-based dishes or a dessert!

2019 Juin 2019 - Sélection Guide Hachette --------------------------------------------------------------
 

Nous sommes très fier que notre Château de la Devèze Monnier Rosé  (AOP Languedoc) se soit vu attribué une étoile dans le Guide Hachette des Vins Rosés 2019-2020.

 

Les juges du Guide Hachette ont noté ‘le duo syrah et grenache vinifié en saignée fait son effet: la robe est colorée, rubis clair, et le nez franchement fuité sur les fruits rouges. La bouche offre de la mâche, du volume, des flaveurs croquantes et consistantes de fruits rouges, avec des nuances florales. Un rosé hors des sentiers battus, généreux, équilibré, qui assume pleinement sa couleur et ses rondeurs.’

 

Comme tous les vins Château de la Devèze Monnier de Terre des 2 Sources, c’est un vin qui se révèlera surtout en compagnon de vos repas. Nos suggestions incluent un cordon bleu et des légumes grillés, une bonne paella ou un risotto, mais essayez votre propre association!
