Description

Situated in the Languedoc-Roussillon region, Minervois was awarded AOC status in 1985. Chateau Guery create this traditional blend from Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre grapes grown in sandstone (Gres) soils and night harvested. Controlled temperature fermentation with punching down of the cap used for the Syrah. The Syrah is aged for 6 months in French oak barrels.

The resulting wines has gentle perfumed aromas of violet and lavender pairing with enticing ripe blackberry, blackcurrant and fresh red cherry. Succulent, ripe and round, the palate bursts with deep jammy berry fruit and gentle warming spice underneath. Try with roasted lamb or curries. 

The climate of Minervois is hot and dry with scrubby, rocky countryside of valleys and ridges providing ideal conditions for viticulture. The Guery family have owned their 40 hectares of vineyards for over 200 years. An immense respect for nature is given and the family work hard to create a perfect balance, with monitored yields and biodiversity encouraged. The soils range between silt, eroded sandy marl and alluvium.
