Le Moulin des Nonnes Cuvée Inés.

Wine Tasting Note: Le Moulin des Nonnes Cuvée Inés, 2004, Minervois, France.
Flying Corkscrew Noel Young Wines around £9.00.
Taste off the scale, interest quickly following. Delicious and characterful. Crisp acidity makes for a similarity to a Sauvignon Blanc. Full, rounded, mineral and honeyed. Nutty, guava, lime, apple complexity. Organic. A blend of 50% Roussanne, 40% Grenache Blanc, 105 Muscat Petits Grains. Alcohol 14%. Moulin des Nonnes translates as the Nuns Mill; hence the image on the label. The acidity makes for an excellent match with goats cheese and creamy dishes or, as I did, with a grilled pork chop and Brussel Sprouts in cream with almonds and bacon.

Scribblings Rating – 94/100
