|Grapes||Carignan, Grenache, Syrah|
From a white limestone soil, so hard it requires three tractors to work the soil. Anne describes that is 'la solaire' - the sunny one, dominated by Syrah, lovely fruit nose, beautiful balance, 60% new and one-year-old barrels, but this barely shows. Scented with cedar and sandalwood, and packed with wild black fruits, and very long. L&S (Nov 2009)

"Expression de Calcaire". Three cépages which complement each other to give us this wonderful cuvée. On this great terroir consisting of limestone and clay soils, facing south, the white blinding limestone of Agel gave us some wines full of great energy. These fine wines, which benefit from careful maturing in barrels, represent a cuvée superbly silky, combined with concentration and a mineral persistence full of finesse. It is the magical combination of a burning sun and cool soil, from where, deep within, the wine draws the water it needs. Early and steady maturity, lovely acidity... A great terroir with 1.30 Ha of 25 year old Syrahs, 0.80 Ha of 104 year old Carignans, 0.50 Ha of 42 year old Carignans and 1.30 Ha of 25 year old Syrahs. Winemaker's notes (Nov 2009)
Domaine Anne Gros et Jean-Paul Tollot
Anne Gros and Jean-Paul Tollot (Domaine Tollot-Beaut) have taken over some wonderful vineyards in the Minervois, and brought Burgundian savoir-faire to an area which all too often produces sweet or leaden-footed lumpen wines. Now into their second vintage these wines have a style of lively freshness which is so uncommon anywhere in Languedoc-Roussillon. We were bowled over by their drinkability, and feel they offer so much in terms of character and flavour, while remaining easy to approach, mineral and light of touch.
