Minervois AOP 2019

Au Gré Des Grès

Estate bottled

Thyme blossoms in Spring

The 5 hectares owned by Louis Biscan in 1900 became Domaine Pujol when he married his daughter to Edouard Pujol in the thirties. Since then four generations have worked on the Estate. Today the property is totally self sufficient, with its own bottling, a brand new cellar and ageing facilities.

This major investment  currently shows some return, with a quality no one argues with and lots of projects ahead for further improvement.

Clay and gravels result from alluvium brought in the Tertiary. Vertical layers of sandstone and marl alternate, thus providing a very good drainage of the soil. Thyme blossoms here in Spring.

Domaine Pujol represents 120 hectares, 30 of which are Minervois AOC.

Advice

On the slopes of the « Balcons de l’Aude », amphitheater leaning against the Montagne Noire, facing South east, the soil of sandstone and clay is the perfect environment for aromatic plants and scrubland of the “garrigue”, bordering the vineyards.

Syrah 80%
Grenache Noir 12%
Carignan 8%

Varietals are fermented separately in open vats and then macerated for 5 weeks with a
traditional work of soft extraction and aeration benefiting the work of the
yeasts.
Once decanted by the cold of winter varietals are blended together.
Wines are then matured for a few months.

Serve at around 16°C.

Aromas of violet and red fruit, with a touch of licorice and flintstone.
This is found also in the taste, with long and subdued tannins which promise a long and beautiful evolution.
Will suit pate “en croute”, roasted duckling, Beef Wellington.
Chicken Casserole, wild boar stew or just a nice array of cow cheeses.
