Varietal: Syrah /Grenache /Carignan
Vintage: 2018 Colour: Red Style: Dry
The Minervois La Livinière is in the heart of Minervois on the highest slopes. Leaning against the steep slopes that surround the Causse, bordered on the west by the Serre d'Oupia, this schistous terroir where Mediterranean influence and freshness of the Causse are combined is truly exceptional. Terroirs d'Altitude are selections of plots that reach 350 meters.
Vinification: Manual harvest. Traditional method. Separated by grape variety. Maceration with very gentle interventions to preserve the finesse of the tannins and the depth of the fruit.
Tasting: Powerful and complex nose, aromas of prunes, very ripe cherries, notes of truffle, cocoa, white pepper and clove. Full and fleshy mouth, fine tannin, dense, well melted wood. Powerful, elegant wine. Very long finish where we find the spices of the nose in retro olfaction.Food Matches: Red Meat/ Game/ Strong Cheeses
