About the Wines

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.

Le Clos des Matelles, named after the vineyard area, where the grapes are grown is the top wine of the domaine. 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.
