Ce vin blanc aux reflets verts est une construction remarquable d’arômes aussi divers que complexes. Whilst the bouquet releases aromas of verbena and garrigue, the mouth shows a woody structure which develops delicately touches of citrus fruits and spices. The structure, perfectly balanced, exudes power and smoothness, enhanced by a long ripe apricot finale.  

2008 - Dussert Gerber: The Minervois, Les Capitelles 2008 is full-bodied, a lovely wine dominated by notes of ripe blackcurrants, which melt in the mouth. Don't hesitate this year.
