Domaine Anne Gros & Jean-Paul Tollot

Burgundy legends, Anne Gros and Jean-Paul Tollot, have combined their 25-year experience and planted vines in the Minervois. Favouring Cazelles because of the huge diversity of soils, they have planted local varieties Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and Cinsault. They have succeeded in bringing a little bit of Burgundy into the Languedoc, creating wines which are fresh, elegant and true to their terroir.
