Tasting Notes

This 2019 vintage of Benjamin Darnault’s Minervois red wine is yet another Naked Wines selection that doesn’t disappoint. Made in the far south of France, not far from Carpentras, it blends grenache grapes and is labelled as a good match for fish, seafood and cheese.

I actually had it alongside a chicken curry, and it went well enough with that too. It has a smooth, fruity flavour and goes down easily. It’s not quite up there with my most favourite reds from Naked Wines, but it’s not far off and, as one of their cheaper ones, it’s great value for money.
