Château Vaissiere 2011 Minervois

I was delighted to see a new Minervois at Trader Joe's, Château Vaissiere 2011.  It was less than $9 a bottle, sported a colorful label (which often would dissuade me), but it was a true Appelation d'Origine Controlee.  The French system of quality control did not let me know.  Château Vaissiere 2011 was refreshing, and akin to Château Landure and other fine Minervois.  It is bottled by another negotiant, Olivier Mandeville, but it does not suffer from any lapse in quality.

Imported by Lattitude Wines, Danville CA for Trader Joes, this is highly recommended.

  1. FYI - the 2012 version which I enjoyed last month, is just as good. Consistent Quality.
