80% Mourvèdre and 20% Syrah
The 2018 Minervois le Vin de Plume is certified organic and biodynamic, by Ecocert and Demeter, respectively. Dark-fruited and spicy, it combines notions of plum, blackberry, pepper and clove on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is sturdy without being tough, finishing with bright acids and velvety tannins.
"Domaine du Somail is a 15-hectare ( 37-acre) estate based in the heart of Minervois. It follows the principles of biodynamic viticulture. Domaine du Somail is also a human story. The story of four passionate people, who care for their soil and terroir, and aspire to share their passion with the world.
First, you have François, the agricultural engineer who traveled the world and finally decided to settle down and reestablish his family estate.
Second, you have Julie, the psychotherapist who followed her family’s ancestral tradition of growing wine.
Third, you have Germain, the talented and innovative sommelier. Faithful to his land and its wines, he decided to ‘spread the word’ everywhere he goes.
Last but not least, you have Patrick, the business man and wine lover from Brittany who chose to share his experience and passion with younger mates.
All of us share the same vision and bring together our competences and sensitivity to sublimate this exceptional terroir. "
