This proudly independent family estate owned estate which was bought by the
Léonor family in 1956 is located in the renowned Cru La Livinière area of Minervois.
Wines are made from blends of Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault and Carignan from the
best and oldest plots of the estate. Great care is taken to hand harvest the grapes
at optimum ripeness and to express the terroir of the area. The wines have been
certified as organic since the 2011 vintage.
Certified as organic since the 2011 vintage, the vines are grown on a hillside
vineyard which benefits from more than 300 days of sunshine per year. Grown in
chalky and clay soils, the vines are over 40 years old and produce an average yield
of 30 hectolitres per hectare. Debudding takes place in May and a green harvest in
July in order to concentrate the flavours in the berries. The grapes are hand
harvested in two tranches in September, when they have reached the optimal
maturity and ripeness levels, from the best plots of the vineyard.
The grapes were carefully hand harvested, with only the grapes that had reached
optimal maturity and from the best plots of the vineyard, being chosen. The wines
were traditionally vinified. The Syrah component of the blend was aged for 12
months in French and American oak barrels, of which 50 % were new barrels and
25% were second fill. The Grenache was aged in stainless steel tanks, to retain the
fruity flavours, prior to the final blend.
A rich, full bodied red wine with aromas of dark fruit with spice complemented by
elegant oak flavours through to a fine, smooth finish.
Great with leg of lamb or a ribeye steak.
