About the Wines
Grenache Guardians will receive a mixed case of 2 x Minervois White, 2 x Minervois rosé and 2 x Minervois red.
Sous la Cabane is the name of the Minervois white which is a blend of 60% Grenache Blanc, 30% Marsanne and the rest is made up of Viognier and Vermentino. Its intense flavour has a citrus character underlined with stone fruit and the fresh flavours linger long on the palate.
Diouselle is the name of the Minervois rosé which is a blend made from mainly Grenache Gris and Syrah. The very pale pink colour belies the intense flavour of summer fruits with a savoury white pepper finish on the tongue.
Peyrottes is the Minervois red, a blend of Syrah and Grenache. The red fruit flavours are joined by garrigue and dried herb flavours and a slightly peppery finish making it the perfect accompaniment to lean red meat.
Carignan Guardians receive a case of Emmanuel Puy’s top cuveé which he has named Le Clos des Matelles, named after the vineyard area, where the grapes are grown. This delicious red wine is a blend of barrel fermented and aged Carignan and Mourvèdre. It’s a full-bodied wine with flavours of dark cherry, spice and a hint of tobacco leaf and leather. You can drink it now or wait for up to 7 years.
