Producer Note
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 organic since the 2011 vintage.

Vineyard
Produced from 30 year old vines, which are grown in chalk and clay soils and produce yields of 40 hectolitres per hectare. The vineyard is managed using strict organic processes. The grapes are hand harvested in September at optimum levels of maturity and phenolic ripeness.

Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed and each variety was traditionally vinified. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks lasting for two weeks. The wine was then aged for one year in French oak barrels in a combination of new, second and third use barrels, with a proportion aged in stainless steel tank. The wines were then blended.

Tasting Note
A subtle blend of ripe cassis with elegant, vanilla notes and a fine, velvety texture.

Syrah 70%, Grenache 30%
