It’s such a great wine. When I tasted it, it reminded me so much of Lambrusco that I had to get it for this wine club. It’s the perfect companion for charcuterie boards filled with spicy cold cuts and mature cheese. This is different from Lambrusco because it’s more fruit-forward and doesn’t have Lambrusco’s signature bitter finish.

Wine region

Languedoc-Roussillon, France

The Minervois wine region, located in the Languedoc area of France, is recognized for producing predominantly red wines. This region benefits from a Mediterranean climate, characterized by ample sunshine and tempered by cooling winds. The vineyards are mainly situated on terraced hillsides, contributing to the distinct qualities of the wines.

Red wines from Minervois typically consist of blends of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre grapes. These varieties yield full-bodied wines noted for their dark fruit and spice flavors, with a subtle mineral undertone. In addition to reds, the region also produces white wines, mainly from Grenache Blanc and Roussanne grapes, known for their floral and fresh characteristics.

Winemaking in Minervois has historical roots dating back to Roman times, and the region has maintained a balance between traditional practices and modern viticulture techniques. This approach results in wines that reflect the region's heritage while meeting contemporary quality standards. Minervois wines are an essential part of the South of France's wine portfolio, offering varied flavors that represent the region's unique terroir and winemaking history.
