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.
