|Sensual and Subtle : Borie de Maurel Belle de Nuit, Minervois 2013
from Borie de Maurel, Felines-Minervois, near Caunes-Minervois
South France Wine Selection
The wines and vineyards of the South Of France
The Minervois is noted for its full blooded red wines, and this wine is one of its kings. If ever there was a complement to the rugged landscape, the temperament of man, woman, and garrigue this is it.
The grapes are havested manually, then a long fermentation -18 months – is carried out in the vat and the bottles, not in wood. The finish being the marriage of master vigneron and the proud grapes of this domaine.
17 euros a bottle
