What the Critics say
'My favorite of the 2014s was the 2014 Minervois les Carretals and it’s one of the best examples of pure Carignan coming out of the Languedoc. Brought up all in barrel, it has fabulous notes of violets, leather, salty minerality and plums to go with a medium-bodied, ultra-pure, balanced, lengthy style on the palate. I continue to be amazed at the purity of fruit Anne is able to get in her wines, and this terrific 2014 will keep for a decade. Drink: 2016-2026. (Apr16)
Anne Gros and Jean Paul Tollot, two winegrowers in Burgundy for over twenty years, have combined their expertise to serve the fine terroirs in Cazelles, in the Minervois. They chose Cazelles for the diversity of its soil, made of limestone, clay and sandstone, for the discovery of four main cepages, for the quality and the wide age range of its vines, the privileged environment at the foot of the Black Mountain, its altitude of 220 metres.
