2009 Domaine Aimé Minervois....$14.99
Tasting Notes: This is a very rich and silky Minervois. The nose is full of briar fruit and spice, with hints of sandalwood and white pepper. In the mouth the wine is lush with black raspberry, cherry, and garrigue notes. In contrast to the rich flavors in the wine, the finish is soft and silky, with extremely ripe tannins. This is a very versatile wine that would be a perfect compliment to most grilled meats, and barbeque dishes.
Technical Notes: Rémi’s Minervois is a blend of 70% Carignan, and 30% Syrah, which is an unusually high percentage of Carignan for a Minervois. However, this unique blend seems to add a lot of depth and character to the wine. This is thanks, in part, to the age of his Carignan vines, which are 60 years old. The grapes are sustainably farmed, 100% destemmed, crushed, and vinified using indigenous yeasts. This wine is fermented and aged exclusively in tank.
