Minervois offers an authentic taste of southern France. From a small family domaine in the top cru area, La Muraille has been crafted with a passion. Old vine Grenache, Carignan and Syrah make for a fine red with silky herbal fruit and spice hints.
Domaine Ancely is a second generation family estate, run today with pride by Bernard and Natalie Ancely. Both are from the Minervois region and learnt a great love for the earth and a passion for the vineyards. The greatest punishment they could receive as children was to be barred from the vineyards. When the couple took over the family estate in 2001, they decided to stop supplying the local co-operative with grapes and make a great wine for themselves. They refurbished the cellars and made changes in the vineyards. The vines are well situated, south facing in the foothills of the Montagne Noire and in the cru area of La Livinière. Each plot is separated by a small wall – La Muraille – and imbued with the fragrance of the wild garrigue.
"With its lifted ripe fruit and wild herbal garrigue, this Minervois speaks of pure southern France"
