L'O DE LA VIE
2017 Minervois Domaine Anne Gros et Jean-Paul Tollot
Lovely fragrant Grenache led nose, strawberries, plums and raspberry fruit. On the palate you get the thicker structure of the Syrah, underpinning the fresh fruit. Plum, blackberry and raspberry, some lovely herbal back notes, a touch of dug earth and then some spice on the long finish. Drinking range: 2020 - 2025 L&S (Jun 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.
Mainly Syrah, with the balance (about 20%) Grenache, the 2017 Minervois L'O de la Vie Cazelles was aged almost entirely in tank. Big, lush and dark-fruited, it flows across the full-bodied palate in easy waves of plums, cola and spice. The tannins are supple almost to the point of creaminess, turning silky on the licorice-tinged finish. Drinking range: 2020 - 2025 Rating: 91 Joe Czerwinski, www.robertparker.com (Jun 2020)
Domaine Anne Gros et Jean-Paul Tollot
Anne Gros and Jean-Paul Tollot (Domaine Tollot-Beaut) have taken over some wonderful vineyards in the Minervois, and brought Burgundian savoir-faire to an area which all too often produces sweet or leaden-footed lumpen wines. These wines have a style of lively freshness which is so uncommon anywhere in Languedoc-Roussillon. We were bowled over by their drinkability, and feel they offer so much in terms of character and flavour, while remaining easy to approach, mineral and light of touch.
