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.
Produced from 30 year old vines, which are grown in chalk and clay soils and produce yields of 40 hl/ha. The vineyard is managed using strict organic processes. The grapes are hand harvested in September at optimum levels of maturity and phenolic ripeness.
The grapes were harvested by hand, de-stemmed and each variety was traditionally vinified. Vatting time of two weeks in stainless steel. The wine was then aged for one year in French oak barrels of new, second and third use and also in tank. The wines were then blended.
A subtle blend of ripe cassis with elegant, vanilla notes and a fine, velvety texture.
Delicious with roast duck or entrecôte.
