Minervois Roc du Piere Domaine de Courbissac, Natural wine, pure ‘Terroir’, dark and red fruits, soft, fresh palate, still the firmness of the region comes through. Brunnhilde Claux is now the custodian of this tiny 2.5 hectare wine estate, she loves the style of her ‘Terroir’, not schist like most of the Minervois region but clay and limestone. The style is softer she says, more freshness, more fruit and softer, rounder palate. These certainly are beautiful and very seductive wines, great balance and you just want to keep on drinking them. The Roc du Piere comes from the Rockiest part of the estate you taste a certain firmness in the wine. It is red wine with shoulders, needs time to open in the glass but what a seductive wine it is, more elegance from the wines of this region, you will not find.
