Clos de Gravillas is an organic estate based in the tiny hamlet of St Jean de Minervois, deep in the Languedoc countryside. Here, John and Nicole Bojanowski make some of the region’s most interesting wines. The Carignan vines that make this wine are from a high, gravelly vineyard and are over 100 years old. This gives the wine real character, as if the vines have soaked up the minerals of the earth and the flavours of the surrounding Garrigue. This is a dark, powerful wine that is a perfect match for slow roasted, herby meats. Unique and beautiful, this is Southern French wine at it’s best.
