Tasting Notes

Robert Parker: 88 Points
eRobertParker.com #212 Apr 2014 Jeb Dunnuck 88 Drink: 2014 - 2017 Moving to the 2011s, this warmer year has added a smidge more texture and overall depth to the wines, and in general, itís a more successful vintage here. Having said that, the 2011 Minervois 50 / 50 is maybe not the best example of this. While it has more up-front and rounded fruit and texture, it shows a rustic edge to its tannin, and I like the overall purity and focus of the 2012 more. Nevertheless, this tank-aged blend of old-vine Carignan and Cinsault (some Grenache) offers plenty of character and will drink nicely over the coming couple of years. Vosne-Romanee-based Anne Gros and partner Jean-Paul Tollot (of Domaine Tollot-Beaut) fashion serious, structured and age-worthy efforts from their estate located in the northern part of the Minervois. I spent the better part of an afternoon with Anne, touring all of her vineyards, and the terroir here is spectacular, with diverse soil and exposure between each of the sites. The wines have vibrant, if not crunchy, acidity, good concentration and beautifully made profiles that will benefit from short-term cellaring. While I hate to use the term Burgundian here, these efforts certainly have a tension and energetic feel (while not lacking fruit) thatís unique to the region.
