Domaine de Cantaussel
Dating back as far as 1700, Domaine de Cantaussel was given a new life by winemakers Claude and Jean-Luc Bohler in 1995.  Found in Minervois (Herault, South of France), the Domaine is of 10ha of vines growing at 300m altitude on chalky clay and sandy, stony soil. The owner have chosen to implement tradional methods, where gravity and pigeage, and the wonderful work of time give exceptional wines.
