Minervois Wine


Minervois is an appellation in the Languedoc, in southern France.The most widespread grape variety is still Carignan, though others, such as Syrah, Grenache, Cinsaut, and Mourvedre, are beginning to take over. Indeed, Syrah and Mourvedre must now account for at least 20% of the blend for red Minervois. The enforced move away from Carignan, as well as advances in winemaking, have combined to make many of the wines great values. Some are downright excellent, yet most still sell for under $15.

White Minervois is made from Roussanne, Marsanne, Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Vermentino, Rolle, and Maccabeo. A sweet white wine labeled Minervois Noble is also made, as well as some Vin Doux Naturel under the obscure appellation of Muscat de St-Jean-de-Minervois.

    A sweet fortified wine, lightly maderised. Not much nose beyond the sweetness and hint of sherry on the end, pleasant enough if cooled. Read More

  • Benjamin Darnault Maris la Senche 2013


    A recent Naked Wines Selection. Love that Dark Purple Red opaqueness in the Glass. Opens with loads of Mint and Thyme; then on to a smoky Blueberry/Plum; then finishes with Fig and Stewed Blue/Black Fruit. The Blue/Black fruit carries over to the mouth, with a long finish of a bit of Concorde Grape, Oak, and Honey/Smoke. Still bit of an alcohol ... Read More

    A very pleasant wine with some nice fruit, if not a lot of length. Berries, plum and a little spice. A good value, even at the $18 I spent in VA. Read More

    Tried it at a local bistro. All four of us enjoyed it. Medium body with nice bouquet, little fruity but really an excellent value. We ordered a case through a local distributor. Both vintages 2012 & 2013 were great. Read More
