Minervois

A.O.P. Minervois

The Minervois is one of the most ancient vineyards of the Mediterranean region. Indeed, its land was chosen by the Romans as providing ideal conditions for the first vines they planted in Languedoc Roussillon. Its name comes from the ancient city of Minerve, a stronghold built by the Romans and dedicated to the goddess Minerva. Since that time, many amphora shards and vestiges of cellars have been discovered, testimony to the importance of this vineyard. The region, austere in winter and redolent with sunshine in summer, has survived over the centuries its invasions by barbarians, Arabs and Christians. The essence of Minervois la Livinière, as in so many Midi appellations, is the blend; a marriage of different grape varieties that adds subtle nuance of flavour to the whole. Natural alcohol level must reach a minimum of 12% without enrichment (so no chaptalisation) and maximum yield is a modest 45 hl/ha. Ageing may be in barrel or vat, and unlike basic Minervois, the wine must be bottled at source, so cannot be sent off to a négociant elsewhere in France...

Le Pont de Répudre - Ventenac-en-Minervois
 
 
Le Pont de Répudre, a historical work par excellence, it is near the village of Paraza, in a beautiful natural setting. This is the first canal bridge built in France, the second in the world. It is the only one built by Riquet, the others having been built later, most by Vauban. Travelers stopped to see the unusual sight while boats passing over a bridge. The canal bridge, begun in 1676, has held 400 people on its site. The amount of gravel carried by the torrent still show the need to cross the river under the Channel. In the middle of the façade, a marble plaque placed in the last century by the heirs of Paul Riquet recalls that he was the inventor. The bridge arch which was damaged during floods in December 1999 has been beautifully repaired. A magical place!
