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

$45.00

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

The domaine was purchased in 2002 by Jean-Michel Cazes, the owner of Château Lynch-Bages in Pauillac.

In the foothills of the Montagne Noire, half-way between the mediaeval town of Carcassonne and the old Roman port in Narbonne, the Domaine L’Ostal Cazes stretches across 150 hectares of land including 60 ha of vines and 25 ha of olive groves.

L’Ostal Cazes owes its name to the term ostal meaning both ”house” and ”family group” in the ancient Occitan language. Its name is loaded with meaning and history for its owners.
