So this exotic mouthful of words might best be quickly explained by simply stating that this is the "retirement project" of former Château Pétrus and Dominus winemaker Jean-Claude Berrouet. But this wine is also an homage to Berrouet's home in the Basque region of the French Pyrenees, close to the Atlantic Ocean. When envisioning the vineyards for Herri Mina, Berrouet selected the warmest, most protected spot he could find, so ripeness and concentration are never an issue here. From Day One, we've considered this to be one of the great reds of France and undoubtedly one of the nation's most distinctive wines of place. Cabernet Franc.
