About the winery

Located in the village of Félines Minervois, Domaine du Petit Causse stretches over the sunny foothills of the Black Mountain. It is an exceptional land where we produce wine of AOC Minervois and AOC Minervois La Livinière appellation.

Just imagine yourself within the Petit Causse, surrounded by thyme, brooms, pine trees and green oak trees -all the fragrances of the garrigue- and coming across a wandering hare as it sometimes happens…

Being a family business of a reasonable size, we are glad to make the time for our clients and maintain a regular contact with them. Every task is handmade from winegrowing, winemaking to the bottling.

It is the love for the Earth and the pleasure to turn it into wine which has been guiding our passion.

Today the respect for the Earth, the vineyard, the grapes and the vinification allowed us producing pleasant, fruity wines of a high quality that have honoured the family.

**** Very good 
A handmade delight
Whilst staying again at Chateau Lasserre (reviewed elsewhere) - the skiing in the Pyrenees is the BEST for years - I determined to go hunting in the Minervois. There is an up-and-coming little Appelation around La Liviniere, a subsidiary of the greater Minervois, but I had only tried it off the supermarket shelf, Leclerc in Limoux as it happens, on the recommendation of the wine buyer there.
So, a beautiful day beckoned, pure sun showing its very first heat, and half an hour to the north-east of Carcassonne on the first slopes of the Montagne Noir we find Felines Minervois and the Chabbert's etablissement Le Domaine du Petit Causse.
Maguy is home and welcoming, and enthusiastic about her wine. But goodness the wine is still very cold Two reds to be tried, a neat Merlot for everyday drinking, and the top of the range assemblage of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan, the subject of this review. Whilst Maguy talks about maceration carbonique (allowing the Carignan to ferment from the inside without crushing it, I recommend a 'coup de micro-onde', say a 20 second blast in the microwave for a bottle.
Have to take the wine on trust at this temperature, and we do. Take it home, put it by the AGA with the cork out for three hours, and sip it with a world class cheese fondue and tomato salad with a balsamic dressing............Bliss.
Cherries (I think morello jam) and boiling leather on the nose, lovely, and the heat of the summer in the Minervois of 2006 comes leaping from the glass.
A lovely tall and heavy bottle too complements this handmade wine. #hotleather #cherries #assemblage
