The chateau is in decay, but he staked everything on the vines.
Improving production and vinification have put new recognition into the region and wines of the Minervois region of Languedoc Roussillon.
And Jean Paux-Rosset (owner) and Claude Gros (winemaker) are using some of the best grape growers in the region.
It’s a mix of Syrah, Grenache, Carignan and Cinsault that takes advantage of the clay/limestone terroir.
Sample slow and often to get the best of it. Highly enjoyable.
