Le Grand Noir brand is the new projet of Les Celliers Jean d'Alibert — one of the most famous wine producers in French Languedoc region. The company unites several communal cooperatives, 20 small domains and châteaux in the Haut-Minervois region, 6000 hectares of vineyards with the most interesting terroirs in different climatic zones. The cellar with 102 sections hold over 40,000 hectoliters of wine. Regular inspections, internal audits, and monitoring of suppliers allow the company to produce high-quality wines. Today Les Celliers Jean d'Alibert has shareholders and 6 main wine suppliers with a total production of 300,000 hectoliters for 6000 hectares of vineyards. In its new project - Le Grand Noir - the company has invited the famous wine critic Robert Joseph. The Le Grand Noir range was named after French priests who lived in the vineyards in the 17th century and wore solely black clothes. The priests believed that people, regardless of their status or abilities, should be humble before God, in other words, "become the lambs of God". This idea inspired winemaker Robert Joseph to create black lambs on the labels of this line. The wines fully reveal the potential of the local terroir.
