Minervois wines

The Minervois territory is a vast amphitheatre bordered by the Canal du Midi to the south, the Montagne Noire to the north and extending from the heights of Narbonne to the gates of Carcassonne.
The Clamoux, Argent Double, Ognon and the Cesse rivers all run down the Montagne Noire to the Aude and, over time, have created a series of terraces made from stones, clays, schiste and limestone. The landscape alternates between these terraces and limestone and clay marls.  The higher altitude areas consist of limestone plateaus.

The climate is mainly Mediterranean with ocean influences to the west (Clamoux and Côtes Noires) with difficult winters in the Causse at altitudes above 300 m.

The Grapes used include Syrah, Mourvedre . Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Lladoner Pelut, Carignan, Cinsault, Terret, Aspiran, Piquepoul for the red wines . Marsanne, Roussanne, Maccabeu, Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache, Vermentino and small berry Muscat for the white wines. (www.languedoc-wines.com)
