Bernard et Nathalie Ancely

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.

  • Leave the winemaking cooperative to make his personal brand of wine
  • Exploit new plots of land and add Syrah (Shiraz) and Grenache to the varieties of grapes
  • Start his own wine cellar carefully watching over every possible detail
  • Vinification (actual process of winemaking) and barrel ageing supervised by an oenologist
  • Favour quality and handcraft: care, train vines, hand pick and carefully transport grapes in small crates, vinify, bottle at the domaine itself

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.
