Cherry-red in the glass. Scents of red berries, violets and sweet spices. On the palate, generously fruity with a slight spice and pronounced minerality. Altogether a very quaffable and attractive glugger. Try with grilled mushrooms stuffed with Pelardon goat's cheese, lentil and Foie Gras salad or roast duck with figs and pomegranates.

Jean-Baptiste and Charlotte Sénat have been working their fifteen hectare domaine in the heart of Minervois since 1996. They are located in Trausse-Minervois in the foothills of the Montagne Noir. The soils are limestone-clay and their mainly south-facing vineyards are set in the heart of the garrigue. They are organic and carry out all work by hand and vinification takes place with minimal intervention in a mixture of large and small casks. Only natural yeasts are used and the wines see no fining or filtration and only tiny amounts of sulphur are used in the cave. 'Mais ou est donc Ornicar' (a French language mnemonic) is a blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre and 10% Cinsault and spends 6 months in oak barrels.

A few must haves
