Famille JM Cazes Domaine L’Ostal Blanc (Viognier) Pays d’Oc 2017

Owned by the team behind Lynch Bages and made from 100% Viognier from IGP Pays d’Oc. It shimmers with bright yellow hues. The nose is orange pith, woody herbs, stone fruits mandarin and dried flowers. Hints of chamomile tea and of course apricots bust through after a little time in the glass. The palate has all those characteristics but again once the wine has been open for a while, the orange/apricot/chamomile flavours kick in but it remains a crisply fresh flavourful white with no oiliness or fatness at all. Great value.

Famille JM Cazes Domaine L’Ostal Minervois la Liviniere “Estibals” 2015

Owned by the team behind Lynch Bages and made from 60% Syrah, 20% Carignan and 20% Grenache from Minervois la Liviniere. There are loads of fruits on the nose. Dark red and blueberry, almost juby with chocolate and a lick of pippy/stemmy, Carignan sappiness that pulls it back to into a savory line. The palate is quite bright and fruity. Cherry/berry, juby and blueberry pie with fruit tannin pulling things into line. There’s no sense of oak here but there is a good savory seam of spices and dried herbs inside a red fruited overcoat. Really good concentration. The Syrah and Grenache shine through as fruit weight while the Carignan adds that seam of structure.

Famille JM Cazes Domaine L’Ostal Minervois la Liviniere “Grand Vin” 2015

Owned by the team behind Lynch Bages and made from 70% Syrah, 15% Carignan, 10% Grenache and 5% Mourvedre from Minervois la Liviniere. This is immediately noticeable as a step up in quality as far as oak goes. There are loads of red fruits on the nose with vanilla, toasted coconut and it’s plum-a-liscious. Not shy by any means, it muscular, ripe and bold but there’s good savory tannin structure supporting all that fruit. It’s a bit like a fist in a velvet glove but again, there’s genuinely good concentration and balance here. A bold expression of Minervois.

More Information

3 Bottle Taster Pack – Languedoc Reds & White! 

Famille Cazes “Domaine L’Ostal Cazes” is owned by the Cazes family who also own the world famous Chateau Lynch-Bages in Pauillac, Bordeaux. In 2017 the Cazes family also acquired  Château Haut-Batailley so they really do know a thing or two about making great wines. These wines all hail from the France’s Languedoc region near the Mediterranean coast. The weather is warm but the climate is tempered by the cooling winds that blow from Med so while many of the reds from here are bold and ripe, Minervois la Liviniere wines seem more elegantly built. That’s a winning formula.

The nose is orange peel &citrus pith, woody herbs, stone fruits mandarin and dried flowers. Hints of chamomile tea and dried apricot. The palate reflects all those characteristics but once the wine has been open for a while the orange/apricot/chamomile flavours kick in. A crisply fresh, “sunshine in a glass” wine.

Famille JM Cazes Domaine L’Ostal Minervois La Liviniere “Estibals” 2015 – Made from 60% Syrah, 20% Carignan and 20% Grenache from Minervois la Liviniere. There are loads of red fruits on the nose with a darker, more brooding undercurrent. Blueberry notes (almost jube-like) and chocolate sit alongside a lick of pippy/stemmy, (I suspect from the Carignan) sappiness that pulls it back to into a more savory line. The palate is quite bright and fruity. Cherry/berry, juby and blueberry pie with fruit tannin pulling things into line. There’s no sense of oak here but there is a good savory seam of spices and dried herbs inside a red fruited overcoat. Really good concentration.

This is immediately noticeable as a step up in quality of fruit, concentration & oak. There are loads of red fruits on the nose with vanilla, toasted coconut and it’s redolent of dark plums. Not shy by any means, it muscular, ripe and bold but there’s good savory tannin structure supporting all that fruit.
