A superb juicy dark red wine that delivers layers of fruit and savoury complexity complemented by a fine, velvety structure. The Syrah sings through on the nose with aromas of smoke, leather, and dried herbs. Cinsault and Grenache provide the counter, giving soft strawberry and raspberry fruit, dried figs, and cherries.
Château Mirausse is located due east of Carcassonne in the southwest part of Minervois. The estate was founded in the thirteenth century and is now run by Raymond Julien who has been producing quality wines in the region for the past 20 years. The gently sloping vineyards are nestled between pine, olive and almond trees. These are bright modern wines with a distinctly Mediterranean personality.
