Domaine la Rouviole Cru La Liviniere 2012, AC Minervois

 

This proudly independent family 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.

 

Vinification:       Hand harvested, of only the grapes with optimal maturity, from the best plots of the vineyard. Traditional vinification.  The Syrah is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels (50% in new barrels and 25% in second year barrels).  The Grenache is aged in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Note:     A rich, full bodied red wine with aromas of dark fruit with spice complemented by elegant oak flavours through to a fine, smooth finish.

Serving suggestion:   Stews, roasted red meat in a sauce with chargrilled vegetables.
