If you like the top wines from Chateauneuf du Pape, then you will love this wine - and at a fraction of the price.
The "black diamonds" Cuvee 1437 selection from Ch. de Pouzols is a blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mouvedre.
Beginning in the early 1990's some of the most dramatic improvement in French wines came from the Languedic region in southern France.
In particular the Minervois sub-region stands out at the pinnacle of this improvement. This Ch. de Pouzols 2014 proves it.
