Domaine de Mairan La Tête dans les Étoiles Cabernet Sauvignon

Domaine de Mairan La Tête dans les Étoiles Cabernet Sauvignon

New Vintage!  This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Languedoc in France is full-bodied without the alcohol punch of new-world cabs.   Lightly aged in oak, it offers fruit, pepper, spice, and a great finish, and pairs nicely with strong cheeses.

About This Wine:
Domaine de Mairan is located on the site of an ancient Roman villa, and the property was also the birthplace and home of Jean-Jacques Dortous de Mairan, the celebrated 17th century physician, mathematician, philosopher, and academic. Jean-Baptiste Peitavy, the winemaker, is the seventh generation owner of Domaine de Marian, and took over production from his father and grandfather, who was the first winemaker in the region to introduce single-varietal Cabernet Franc wines. Today, the vineyard is frequently listed in the Guide Hachette and sells wine to restaurants throughout France. First Vine is the first importer to bring Domaine de Mairan wines to the U.S.

Jean-Baptiste’s grandfather decided to break with the traditional Languedoc grape varietals of the region, and Jean-Baptiste has continued refining the wines to strike a balance between rusticity and elegance. Plus a little fun -- the name La Tête dans les Étoiles comes from his daydreaming in school, and his teachers told him to get his head out of the stars and back to work in class.  The  wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and is lightly aged in oak. It's a perfect cross between a bigger-bodied red and the lower alcohol content of old-world wines. It won't burn your eyes the way some new world Cabs can. But you'll still get that fruit, pepper, spice, warmth, and great finish.
