Tasting Notes

Great aromas of apple blossom and Anjou pear with soft minerality. The texture is round with hints of wax and honeysuckle with just enough orchard fruit. It is medium-plus in body with balancing acidity and a long finish.

WINE INFORMATION

Maz Caz is a project developed by winemaker Michele D’Aprix.  This project was born out of a desire to find a Mediterranean perspective on the flavors and aromas in wines she learned how to make at Celler Comunica in Montsant, Spain.  

Caz translates to “crazy in a good way.” The Grenache Blanc and Roussanne blend is organic and comes from the Southwestern Rhône Valley where the attitude and exposition are truly Mediterranean. The juice is fermented in steel with natural yeast and the wine is unoaked.

D’Aprix has a degree in Viticulture and Enology and is the only American woman making her own wine in Bordeaux. She bottles under her own label, Pentimento, at Château Beauséjour in Montagne-St-Émilion, where she also helps craft the house labels. All are made with organic methods. She also imports Bordeaux wine (her own and others’) to the United States. She cites Derenoncourt, who is now 54, as her mentor and inspiration. “Winemaking was her dream,” he said. “My idea was to help her understand how important are the grapes.” From him, she learned that the best winemaking is done in the vineyard, not the blending room—that wine should be a little bit wild.
