CHÂTEAU TOURENS MINERVOIS 2014 is available to buy in increments of 1
50% Syrah, 20% Grenache, 20% Carignan & 10% Mourvèdre
Directly north from the appellation of Corbieres, separated from it only by the River Aude and its companion, the Canal du Midi, is Minervois. As with Corbieres, Minervois is an appellation where Carignan once ruled, blended with the other red grapes of the Languedoc, including Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Lledoner Pelut, Cinsaut and others.

The improving varieties - Syrah and Mourvèdre - must constitute a minimum 10% of the blend, a fairly small requirement that mirrors the character of Corbieres. Syrah is more widely planted than Mourvèdre, as it is more suited to the inland location. Like Corbieres the region was awarded AC status in 1985, and since then there has been a number of significant changes in the region, all with the aim of an improvement in quality.
Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"Chateau Tourens is produced from the Minervois wine-growing region, which stretches over the hills and vales of south-eastern France. Wine from the ​Chateau Tourens reveals a beautifully deep and elegant ruby red colour, the bouquet produces a fine aromatic expression of red fruit, blackcurrent and notes of liquorice. It is very smooth on the palate with a fresh touch and aromas of raspberry, chocolate and spice."
