Winemaker's Notes:

Muscat de St. Jean Minervois is one of the great sweet fortified wines of France. The wine is a rich golden yellow with an immediate and powerful nose, distinguished by a complex aroma suggesting apricots, quince, mandarin orange, honey and Muscat. On the palate, the wine is simply luscious.

100% Muscat Blanc a Petit Grains

My Notes:

About Les Petits Grains:

St. Jean de Minervois is located just north of the much larger appellation of Minervois. The two are not the same. St. Jean Minervois is a small (700 acres) high altitude (900 ft) limestone plateau planted almost exclusively to “small berry Muscat”, the finest variety. The appellations is farmed by one group of cooperative wine growers and several individual growers. The vineyard benefits from its own “appellation controlee”. The Cave at which our Muscat is made is a long standing member of the Val d’Orbieu and has been involved in innovative and modern winemaking under the direction of Marc Dubernet for over 25 years.
