Château Canet Minervois Rouge
Chateau Canet Minervois Rouge has elegant blackberry, cherry and blackcurrant aromas with a floral, violet note and a savoury bacon fat element typical of Syrah. At first the sweet, dark, berry fruit dominates the palate, but spice flavours and ripe, velvety tannins step forward to add complex appeal. Long on the finish, this is a class act that keeps tempting you back for more.

After a cool fermentation to retain as much of the fruit character of the grapes as possible, the majority of the Château Canet Minervois Rouge is matured in stainless steel for 12 months. Around 15% of the wine was matured in second fill Vosges oak barrels to enhance the overall complexity without adding heavy oak flavours. Gold medal winner.
Why we like this wine
This is a delicious wine that is packed with berry fruit with tannins that support but don't overpower the wine. It's ready for instant drinking but also can age a further year or two when it will develop complexity and depth of flavour. That said, we like it now and it offers such good value for money. The presentation is stylish too so no matter if you're just having a mid-week supper or hosting an elegant dinner party, this wine is just the thing to serve.
