The delightful Domaine de L’Herbe Sainte, in the Eastern Minervois, is just on the edge of the delightful small village of Mirepeisset.
The Greuzard family produce a lovely, rich, spicy red, Minervois Tradition, from their own vineyards surrounding the property.
The blend is Syrah dominant with Carignan and Grenache Noir as well. All the grapes are de-stemmed. There is only a very light filtration and ageing is in stainless steel.
Bright, deep red with a very typical nose of black fruit, black olive, cedar and garrigue. On the palate, a dense fruit led wine with well-integrated tannins and the same, delicious rich southern range of aromas.
Grapes: Syrah, Carignan, Grenache, Grenache Noir
Pair with roast rump of lamb, goat’s cheese, red meats, game, cassoulet, cheeses, duck confit.
