What is it? The 2016 Domaine Ancely Minervois is a great vintage of this hugely popular and remarkably under-priced red wine from low-yielding old vines. It’s a deep, dark, perfumed, complex red wine made from grenache, syrah, and carignan. ABV is 14.5%.
What does it taste like? This is spectacular Minervois! It is very deeply colored and gorgeously perfumed with violets, black fruits, spices, and minerals. The palate is deep, concentrated, and velvety-textured. The long finish shows dark fruit, spice, and minerals.
