La Curiosite Minervois 2017 | Celliers Jean D'Alibert

La Curiosité, which means “the Oddity” in French, invites you on a winding journey to a secret corner of the sunny Languedoc where grapes ripen to perfection. The name refers to a spot in the hills of the Minervois where the lie of the land gives rise to an unusual trompe l’oeil.

"Rich dark fruit and savoury umami flavours characterize this wine, made from grapes high on the schistous terraces of La Livinière, Minervois’ top vineyard area. One of France’s insider secrets, the best wines of the Minervois offers succulent, savoury dark fruit, velvet-smooth tannins and a signature sense of freshness."

“This is 100% Syrah from the top vineyard site in this area, it has a savoury, meaty, spicy nose, a dense, black fruit palate with an attractive green edge to the fruit. Stonking value.”

Peter Dean, The Buyer

“This Minervois is a beauty, with full, spicy, dark fruit but the most interesting thing about this wine is that it delivers its amazing flavour without ever being too heavy or overbearing. The fruit is dense and chewy but also energetic and refreshing and this means that you can certainly polish off a few glasses without it tiring your palate.”

Matthew Jukes, The Daily Mail



France’s ancient Languedoc-Roussillon wine region is also its most dynamic. Sweeping from Provence to the Spanish border, the Languedoc-Roussillon features craggy mountains, rolling hills, salt flats, and broad plains, harbouring vineyard sites and soils of unrivalled diversity. Warm, dry conditions, cooling Mediterranean breezes, and luminous sunshine give intensely-flavoured grapes. If this weren’t enough, cheap land has attracted a new generation of winemakers, bringing investment, expertise and a new appreciation of the Languedoc-Roussillon’s unique terroir.
