#1 Minervois: This region makes savory wines with a Syrah emphasis, often threaded with herbal notes. The powerful but balanced wines are great partners for the center of the table at many a holiday or other family gathering: the turkey. Thyme is a natural choice for seasoning turkey and chicken meat.
Within the larger Minervois appellation, there is also the Crus du Languedoc appellation of Minervois la Livinière. These beautifully structured wines add a true touch of class to your holiday celebration at approachable splurge prices.
