Organic. As Claux gets to understand her vineyards in more detail, certain parcels are bound to stand out more than others. One such vineyard, close to the cellar, is home to some 70-year-old Carignan and some 90-year-old Grenache on clay/limestone soils. Brunnhilde Claux calls the wine from this site Roc du Suzadou, after one of Minervois highest peaks. She considers it her ‘grand cru’ wine. Fascinatingly, Claux told us that she had recently been told (by an old wine-growing family in the area) that the rootstock used in this site is grafted to a phylloxera resistant clone derived from French vine species. We did not know that such a rootstock existed, and neither, it turns out, do most of the French! You learn something new every day. Today, most Minervois producer’s top cuvée is based at least partly on Syrah. Not so here.
