Borie de Maurel Belle de Nuit, Minervois

Borie de Maurel Belle de Nuit, Minervois

Made from 100% Grenache grown on the slopes of the Black Mountains (Montage Noire) a region shaped by erosion with a variety of soil types from flint, marl, limestone and silica clay. The grape harvest is manual; the fermentation is long and started with 'carbonic maceration', with 18 months ageing carried out in vat and the bottle. Generous fruit is backed by spice and weight in the mouth and finesse on the finish.
