Grapes Syrah, Grenache
Colour Red
Origin France, Languedoc-Roussillon
District Minervois
ABV 14.5%
Vineyard La Livinière

These wines are so of their place, with a distinct perfume of Mediterranean herbs and smoky barbecued meats. This is a rich red, made from Grenache and Syrah, but it never feels heavy and overdone. Savoury, herbal with plum, strawberry, blackberry and ground black pepper. Ripe full tannins are balanced by a lovely fresh acidity, so the feel in the mouth is persistent and super drinkable. Match this to a roast leg of lamb, sirloin of beef, venison or long slow cooked pork joint. Drinking range: 2020 - 2025 L&S (Nov 2020)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

A Grenache dominant blend made from grapes planted in north-facing vineyards on clay-limestone terraces. A wonderfully fragrant nose here, violets and damsons with blackcurrants and cherries. This is smooth and elegant, a hint of spicy tannins gently coating the mouth while the dark fruit core settles and shows it's length. Rich and juicy but it also has a line of minerality that keeps things fresh and interesting. Delicious. Drinking range: 2020 - 2025 Rating: 93 Georgie Hindle - Decanter (Jul 2020)
