Domaine Anne Gros & Jean-Paul Tollot Minervois La Ciaude 2012 (2211)

France - Languedoc-Roussillon - Minervois
Rhone Blend

Three cepages which complement each other to give us this wonderful cuvée. On this great terroir consisting of limestone and clay soils, facing south, the white blinding limestone of Agel gave us some wines full or great energy. These fine wines, which benefit from careful maturing in barrels, represent a cuvée superbly silky, combined with concentration and a mineral persistence full of finesse. It is the magical combination of a burning sun and cool soil, from where, deep within, the wine draws the water it needs. Early and steady maturity, lovely acidity.


A great Terroir consisting of:

1.30 Ha of 25 year old Syrah

0.80 Ha of 108 year old Carignan

0.50 Ha of 12 year old Grenache

The 2012 Minervois La Ciaude, which is mostly old-vine Carignan with smaller parts Syrah and Grenache, also has serious minerality to go with tangy black cherry, black fruits, leather and violet aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, tight, energetic and elegant, it will have a decade of longevity.
