It is its blood-red colour that always distinguishes our well-bred Minervois. The 2014 vintage in this appellation offers us a wine which is less opulent than its predecessor, but just as elegant. Initial aromas of boxwood, wild juniper and cistus flowers give way to notes of red fruit, cherry and redcurrant. The sensation in the mouth is delicate, smooth and balanced, with a succulently fruity and spicy middle palate that is reminiscent of the scents of the south after a summer rain shower. A very gracious and promising wine.
