Clos Centeilles with their unique cinsault wines

Clos Centeilles in Minervois was actually one of the first Languedoc producers we discovered in the early 90s. At that time they had just started out – today they celebrate their 20th anniversary.

The celebration included organising a vertical wine tasting at Vinisud with their Capitelle de Centeilles, made from the owner’s, Patricia Boyer-Domergue’s, favourite grape, the cinsault (100%). It is the oldest of the permitted grapes in the Languedoc, she says, and it is capable of doing much better things than people generally think. Which the vertical showed well with vintages from 2008 to 2000. The ten year old wine was very lively with an intense aroma and concentrated on the palate. In the right hands a cinsault can indeed express both elegance, fruit and freshness. Happy 20 years Centeilles!
