San Francisco Chronicle / Minervois 2008

2012-01-08 San Francisco Chronicle

This relatively new label (founded in 2002) taps into some of the region’s top vineyard areas benchmark versions of the wines. While the dry Minervois areas relies heavily on Carignan, Syrah is dominant in this bottle, from a variety of mostly clay and limestone sites. It’s brimming with well-tailored fruit and subtle accents of violets and bouillon. If it’s more prim than some Minervois, it’s also pleasingly dense and chewy. By Jon Bonné, The Chronicle’s wine editor.
