This is a plush wine of depth and complexity from a great vintage. Aged for over two years in French barrels this Franc is a tribute to the gentle marriage of fine-grained oak and red wine. Its tannins are well-integrated and frame the wine perfectly. Its flavors meld and flow seamlessly. A wine to think about while drinking, as it will insistently remind you.
Named for the humble "pichets" (wine carafes) of French cafes, this red wine is light-bodied, uncomplicated and refreshing. It is a blend of younger grapes produced exclusively at Muse Vineyards 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.
Used primarily as a blending grape in French Bordeaux wines, especially in the Medoc region, Petit Verdot has come into its own in Virginia as a single varietal.. Much beloved by critics and consumers alike, this wine is proof that Petit Verdot has found the perfect home at Muse Vineyards in Virginia's dry and beautiful Shenandoah Valley. The vines were 10 years old in 2017, which was a warm dry vintage that produced gently ripened grapes. Wonderful to pair with hearty meat or vegetable stews or spaghetti bolognese.
