2017 Minervois Cazelles Domaine Anne Gros et Jean-Paul Tollot

Grapes Syrah, Cinsault, Grenache
Colour Red
Origin France, Languedoc-Roussillon
Sub-district Minervois
Village Minervois Cazelles
ABV 14.5%

This is a blend of Syrah, Grenache and some amazing 108 year old vine Cinsault, soils here are limestone and clay which with Cazelles being the highest village in Minervois at 220 Mtrs (the same as Vosne Romanee apparently) means these wines have incredible energy. Aged in a mix of 80% Barrique and 20% stainless steel this has notes of wild flowers, loganberry, blackberry and fennel. The palate is bright and vivacious with aniseed, dark fruits and a lovely salty minerality on the finish. Drinking range: 2020 - 2030 L&S (Apr 2020)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

The 2017 Minervois Cazelles La Ciaude features a harmonious mix of blueberries, raspberries and cherries on the nose, all wrapped in a subtle cloak of gentle oak. A blend of 40% each Carignan and Syrah with 20% Grenache, aged entirely in oak, this medium to full-bodied wine is supple and velvety, with a degree of harmony and elegance—could that be this parcel's limestone soils?— not seen in the other Tollot & Gras wines. Drinking range: 2020 - 2027 Rating: 93 Joe Czerwinski, 2020)

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. 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.
