Sspecial quality from the South of France and one to taste. Ripe red and black currants, juniper berries and spice flavours abound. A meaty wine with a concentrated taste and extra impressions of praline and nutty tannin. A silky long finish adds to the enjoyment of this wine. A versatile meal wine this La Croix de Saint Jean Minervois red goes well with a barbecue, steak, or grilled red meats.


About The Winery

A leading winery in the Minervois subregion of Languedoc-Roussillon in the south of France. Led by Michel Fabre who returned to 'his' Languedoc-Minervois after studying oenology in Burgundy and has since become an authority in this region. Three generations of Michel's family are involved, his father Robert and his son Alexis. Two of the wines are aptly called 'the father' (Lo Paire) and 'the son' (Lo Mainatge) in Occitan, along with his own 'Cuvee Michel'.

Michel has a specific preference for the schist soils in the foothills of the mountains in the northeast of the Minervois - called Les Causses - where it is a little cooler. This ensures more elegance in the wines. Domaine La Croix de Saint Jean has planted 18 hectares with syrah, grenache and mourvèdre.
