For this week’s Bevvy of the Week I’d like to recommend a wine from Southern France called Minervois. It’s produced in the region of Languedoc-Roussillon and this particular Minervois is made by Calvet.
Three grape varieties are used in the production of this wine; Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. The wine is rich and full with a high intensity of dark red fruits. It’s mouth filling with soft tannins and a lingering finish.
Minervois Calvet is 13% abv, costs around €10 per bottle and is worth every drop.
