17pts ‘There’s a haunting silence sense of black midnight strung with cold stars sitting deeply between the shoulder blades of this wine. Minty, blackcurrant, dark cherry, graphite scented, black olive and mouth watering. Rather beautiful’.
An elegant, wild Minervois with scents of black fruit, blackcurrant and mulberry with a
surprising, smoky finish. It’s lively freshness and classy balance will make this wine a
perfect companion for joyful gastronomic occasions.
Drinks particularly well with classic Languedoc pork, lamb or duck dishes.
Pairs well with lentil/rice vegetarian dishes, beet burgers, mushrooms and pizza.
