100% Cinsault from the heart of Minervois. An under-appreciated grape from an under-appreciated region. Floral and stewed plum and cherry aromas on the nose, blueberry, pepper and a bit of spice on the palate - almost Beaujolais like in character and mouth feel. Drink slightly chilled.
Wine Of Origin
Domaine des Homs
L’Amandier is 100% Cinsault, a grape that Jean-Marc says has historically been an eating grape, but if made into wine, is reserved for rosé. He was making it into a red (winemaking above) and drinking it chilled in the summertimes (often 40 degrees outside), but not selling it. Fanny (his export agent) upon tasting it at one of his barbecues, insisted he bottle it. Totally delicious.
Slightly chilled at Christmas with turkey...or on a Wednesday with some goat's cheese.
