Banjamin Taillander - Viti Vini Bibi 2018
Region: Minervois / Languedoc
Grapes: Grenache / Carignan
Grown on mostly clay-limestone soil, with occasional schist, sand and marble. Manual harvest and indigenous yeast. Benjamin feels that many of the wines in the Minervois AOC are too concentrated and alcoholic, and works hard to make wines that, while full flavoured, are lighter, fresher, and lower in alcohol than most average wines from the Languedoc.
Juicy but not lacking in structure - the wine is perfumed with red berries and finishes with a moreish smokiness. Great value Languedoc red.
