Cicero and Pliny the Elder were apparently big fans of the wines of Minervois. Located in Languedoc-Rousillon, this is a rugged land, rich in history.

Minervois itself lies between Carcassone and Narbonne. Carignan used to be the dominant grape here, and maybe that's what Cicero was drinking after addressing the Roman Senate, but these days Minervois reds are also blended with Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache, Cinsault et al.

Anne Gros and Jean Paul Tollot are well known Burgundy winemakers who have set up a winery in Minervois. 

 

Having searched the Languedoc high and low for their dream vineyard site, husband and wife team Anne Gros (Domain Anne Gros - Vosne Romanee) and Jean -Paul Tollot (Domain Tollot-Beaut - Chorey Les Beaune) discovered 14 quite beautiful hectares of vines surrounding the tiny hamlet of Cazelles in the Minervois AOC.


Anne says '"we chose Cazelles for its soil diversity of limestone and sandstone on which are planted the four main grape varieties of the region, Carignan, Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. The vines were in excellent condition and of varying ages (much of it ancient), planted in an ideal location at the foot of the Montagne Noire at 220 metres altitude (similar to Vosne Romanee)."

 

Gros-Tollot 4 Labels The 2011's are about to arrive. Instead of the usual 15% Pre Arrival discount we offer an incredible 50%. Prices start at just $21.75. But only for today. And only until midnight.

 

Why such a big discount? The Gros and and Tollot wines come parcelled with Domaine Anne Gros Burgundies. We make our margin on the Burgundies and are happy to use the Minervois for promotions with very tempting discounts.

 

Past vintages of these wines have proven very popular, particularly with our restaurant friends, several of whom have served the wines by the glass. They are delicious and interesting drinking. 

 

With the 2011 vintage the domaine introduces a new 100% Syrah Cuvee named L'O De la Vie. Check the wines out on our website and save 50% on these Burgundian-influenced Minervois.

2010 Chambertin Grand Cru at a very reasonable price

Frantin Chambertin 2010 Bottle

 

Chambertin - the King of Burgundy. And it usually has a royal price to match.
 
The Domaine du Clos Frantin Chambertin 2010 scores 94 in Burghound and 95 by the Wine Enthusiast.
 
Burghound: 
This is also notably elegant and very cool with a perfumed if reticent nose comprised of wet stone, underbrush, wild red berry fruit and pungent earth aromas. The mouth coating and broad-shouldered flavors ooze with a very fine minerality that continues onto the austere, focused, linear and almost painfully intense finish that delivers spectacular length. Like several of the wines in the range, this is a classic example of the appellation. 
94 Points
 
I opened a bottle whilst we were in Sydney recently and the wine has everything Burghound says and more.
 
To be honest I don't know why we have any left. It is a very serious 2010 Burgundy at a sensible price for the pedigree.
