AOP Minervois

Domaine Sibille 2020

€610 Flacon de 10cl

This amazingly intense wine with its cherry red colour and fuscia rim is an icon of its estate. Its nose initially displays fruity aromas of blackcurrant jam, before leading into minty notes and hints of thyme. The palate is supple, round and beautifully fresh. A fruity wine combining delicious flavours and length.

Winemakers

Pierre et Barbara Sibille

Originally from Alsace, the winegrowers Barbara and Pierre Sibille have no ordinary background. In 2015, Pierre, a qualified oenologist and Sibille, a civil servant, quit everything for a new life as independent winegrowers. After touring France’s wine regions in a motor home with their children, they found what they were looking for in Laure-Minervois and decided to buy a vineyard there. It was no accident that the estate they chose has been certified as organic since 2009, as Barbara and Pierre feel strongly about employing non-polluting and environmentally friendly methods. For them, organic winegrowing is not only about production techniques, it is a genuine philosophy.
