This is a fine wine from a fine vintage. Its flavors are melded beautifully and flow seamlessly; both a sensual and cerebral pleasure at the same time. (It is a Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Franc and Petit Verdot.) Matured in French barrels. ABV 14.2%.
A native of southern Burgundy, the Gamay vine excels on soils like those found at Muse Vineyards. A consensus favorite of sommeliers, we are pleased to have contributed to the renaissance in the U.S. of this irresistible bistro wine of France.
Named for the humble “pichets” (wine carafes) of French cafes, this red wine is light-bodied, uncomplicated and refreshing. It is a blend of grapes produced exclusively at MUSE from our younger vines. It is fermented in stainless steel and bottled early. Serve slightly chilled and enjoy it as the wine of boulevardiers and resting Moulin Rouge dancers. ABV 13.6%
Muse Logo Apron
Let dad indulge himself with fine wines and an afternoon at the barbecue with this handsome gray apron adorned with the Muse logo. It’s machine-washable, 65 percent polyester, 35 percent cotton, and included with the Father’s Day Trio.
A Note on Pricing
Because viticulture is difficult in Virginia (heavy rains, late season rots, mildews, hard Spring frosts, cold winters, etc.) some wineries believe it justifies charging a premium for their wines. We don’t share that view – we chose to develop a vineyard and winery here and nobody should be expected to subsidize that choice. Hand-tended and harvested vines produce better wine, so the added expense of that kind of labor intensive viticulture is recouped in a bottle price that is objectively reflective of that quality. At Muse we insist on a fair value-to-price ratio, i.e. there’s no premium charged just because it’s Virginia wine – each wine we sell must stand on its own two feet as worth its price. Our quartet selections can be put up against a similar style of wine (for example, a barrel fermented white (e.g. white Burgundy) or a Bordeaux blend, e.g a Napa/Sonoma meritage) at the same retail price – assuming you can even find one in the $20-30 range – and our wine will always equal and in most cases exceed the quality of that wine. If you ever have reason to disagree, please tell us.
