Bernard and Nathalie Ancely love the scent of the earth and the result of their labour is a fine reflection of that deep-rootedness in nature.
Four keywords sum up their main values: confidence, rigour, authenticity, simplicity.
Bernard Ancely strongly believes the success of his vintage Minervois and Minervois la Livinière wines lies in the choices he has made to develop the family vineyard.
When they were children, Bernard and Nathalie Ancely’s parents told them: “If you don’t behave, you can’t go to the vineyard ...” A sentence which says a lot about their families’ deeply rooted love for the vineyard.
At the foot of the montagne Noire (= ‘black mountain’), the Domaine Ancely is situated on a stretch of fragrant garrigue (scrubland typical for the Mediterranean regions) facing south, its rocky limestone soil thoroughly and profoundly characterizing both the Minervois PDO and Minervois la Livinière PDO wines.
In other words, the ideal region for this wine-producing domaine which, since 2004, has earned numerous awards for its different vintage wines each of which has its own generous, honest and sincere flavour.
