Chateau Massiac Minervois Rouge Cuvée Sentinelle
|Region||France, Languedoc-Roussillon, Minervois|
The “Sentinelle” cuvée is the more precocious of the two reds produced at Massiac. The tannins are more supple and the fruit a touch “sweeter”, more forward and less rustic than its companion. Fermentation and elevage are in tank. The wine is bottled within a year of the harvest. The blend is usually two-thirds Syrah and one-third Carignan. Somewhere between 9,000 and 10,500 bottles are reserved for us for the US market. Certified organic as of the 2012 vintage.
