Our favorite producer from Minervois just released his new vintages and it just came to NY!

Located in Caunnes-Minervois, Benjamin produces natural wine from the Languedoc with very low intervention (natural yeasts, low sulfur..). He feels that many of the wines in the Minervois AOP are too concentrated and alcoholic, and works hard to make wines  that, while full flavored, are lighter, fresher and lower in alcohol than most average wines from the Languedoc

Blanc 2013: Terret Gris-Grenache gris. Small skin contact maceration and naturally fermented in oak.

6 Rose 2013: Cinsault-Syrah-Carignan. Direct press and fermented in tank.

Laguzelle 2013: Cinsault-Syrah-Carignan. Short Cold maceration and natural fermentation in tank

Viti Vini Bibi 2012: Grenache-Cinsault-Carignan. 12 days of cold maceration, fermented in tank. 1 year of aging in vat.

Bufentis 2012: Syrah-Carignan. From 60 years old vines, long maceration in tank. 1 year of aging in old oak.
