Minervois Rouge Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Pierre Cros, 2015

17.99

Situated in Badens, a few kilometres from Carcassonne, the vineyards of Domaine Cros sit on the poorest of poor shallow stony argilo-calcaire soils, so stark and inhospitable, that only the vine and the olive tree can scratch an existence. The love of this arid terroir, where the drought seems more extreme than elsewhere, has induced Pierre Cros to preserve his ancient parcels of Carignan, planted in 1910. Sturdy, sweet and warm, with rich red berry fruit and the herby grip of terroir, it’s a living testament to why we shouldn’t overlook the Carignan grape or the wines of Minervois.
