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
Certified 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.


Winemaking
The grapes were carefully selected to ensure only the highest quality fruit was vinified.
The wines were traditionally fermented with selected yeasts. 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.


Tasting Note
A beautifully concentrated wine redolent of Southern France with aromas of dark
fruit, spice, leathery notes and elegant oak flavours. This is full-bodied, textured and
opulent with a fine, smooth finish.
