Minervois Blanc Les Costes 2019 - Domaine Pierre Cros - Languedoc, France 75cl
BOTTLE SIZE: 75CL
THE WINEMAKER: DOMAINE PIERRE CROS
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 in certain places 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 ancient parcels of Aramon (planted in 1930), Piquepoul Noir (1910), Alicante alongside the more classic “noble” (parvenu) varieties of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre
The Minervois Blanc is lovely – a field blend of Grenache Blanc, Vermentino, Muscat à Petit Grains and Piquepoul Blanc. Typically floral and resinous at the same time this white conjures dried apricots and plums sprinkled with garrigue notes of fennel and broom.
