Château de Gourgazaud is one of the top
estates in Minervois, a part of France’s
Languedoc region that’s gaining cachet.
What You Need To Know
Lately, high-profile vintners have
been setting up shop in the rocky wilds of Minervois, a hilly,
remote corner of northwest Languedoc, the region that spans
much of France’s Mediterranean coast. The Picquet family, on the
other hand, have been leading the renaissance of this overlooked
wine region since 1973, when Roger Picquet—a wine wholesaler
from Normandy—purchased Château de Gourgazaud and set
about restoring the ancient château and replanting its vineyards,
which lie high in the foothills of the Cévennes mountains. Located
in the Roman wine village of La Livinière, de Gourgazaud produces
some of the region’s benchmark wines. This entry-level blend
of Syrah and Mourvèdre reflects the sunny Mediterranean climate
in its powerful, deep fruit flavors.
Smoky black currant,
leather and spice notes.
Full-bodied and darkly fruity,
with plum, cassis and
