Jean-Baptiste and Charlotte Sénat have been working their fifteen-hectare domaine in the heart of Minervois since 1996. They 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, only tiny amounts of sulphur are used. Heady aromas of wild cherry and blackberry fruits with notes of liquorice and dried herbs. On the palate, excellent concentration and depth. Rich, opulent black fruit flavours abound with a seriously mineral backbone.
