One of the greatest wine yet from Anne, the incredible 2013 Minervois les Carretals is a blend of Carignan (from vines planted in 1909) and Grenache that's brought up all in French oak. It exhibits thrilling notes of black raspberry, liquid violets, salty minerality and hints of licorice to go with an ultra-pure, elegant, medium to full-bodied feel on the palate. Given the overall purity and quality of the texture, it's hard to resist now, yet I think it will be even better in another year or two, and evolve easily through 2025. These latest 2013s from proprietress Anne Gros are some of the strongest wines in the vintage, as well as the greatest wines I've tasted from the estate. (JD)
