The standout vineyard, close to the cellar, is home to some 70-year-old Carignan and some 90-year-old Grenache vines on clay/limestone soils. Brunnhilde Claux calls the wine from this site Roc du Suzadou, after one of Minervois highest peaks. She considers it her ‘grand cru’ wine. Today, most Minervois producer’s top cuvée is based at least partly on Syrah, but not so here. The blend is roughly 50/50 Carignan and Grenache, and in another point of difference, it is a supremely fine boned wine that shows the finesse we are coming to expect of all of Brunnhilde Claux’s wines. In short, this is another stunning wine that shows the promise of the best sites of the Minervois. A wonderful perfume of lavender, thyme and grenadine leads to a super fine, perfumed and sexy palate – somehow delicate, and yet seductive, and oh so pure, all at the same time. Another brilliant wine that should not be missed!
