|Availability:||In stock (45)|
The wine is noteworthy for the label alone, a celestial map of the night sky. The name, Les Heretiques, is an homage to the Cathars, a pacifist Christian group that were massacred in Minervois in 1208. A blend of 90% old vine Carignan (some date back almost 100 years) with 10% Syrah. This is a bold, deep, rustic red with firm tannins. It’s funky and gamey with leather and tar notes as well as some dark berry and sour cherry flavors. Enjoy with a grilled ratatouille.
